45-year-old Robert Scott Thomas, a homeless man, has been arrested for an armed robbery that took place last Friday at a Subway sandwich Shop in Gulfport.

Authorities said the suspect entered the shop, demanded money from multiple employees and after getting the money, fled the business on foot.

Joshua Broman with the Gulfport Police department said Thomas was arrested in the 2000 Block of 15th Street without incident and was then taken to the Harrison County Adult Detention Facility where he is being held in lieu of a one hundred and fifty thousand dollar bond.

The bond was set by Harrison County Justice Court Judge Brandon Ladner.
