She went from “ sandwich artist” to scam artist.
Authorities in New Mexico jailed a Subway dining establishment employee in Las Cruces after she staged a break-in in her own shop, apparently because “she wanted to teach among the staff members a lesson.”
Lorena Ariana Marin told officers she staged a break-in at the Las Cruces Train where she operated in order to “teach among the employees a lesson about what might happen late in the evening in that part of town.”.

Lorena Ariana Marin, the Train employee, and her alleged accomplice, Angelo Rey Espinosa, managed the fake robbery on Monday, bursting into the store with masks over their faces. Marin, 22, then hopped over the counter and started “verbally and physically” threatening the two on-duty employees while Espinosa, 19, waited.
” The female also ordered one of the staff members to get rid of the client at the drive-thru window,” the Las Cruces cops wrote on Facebook
Marin and Espinoza quickly rounded up the two employees toward the back of the shop, at which point one of the workers “bolted” out of the eatery and made it to her cars and truck.
The 2 suspects got away the scene shortly later.
Authorities overtook Marin and Espinoza “within minutes” of the criminal offense after a citizen reported seeing a suspicious car parked close by. Inside the vehicle, officers found Marin and Espinoza. Marin was recognized as a possible suspect after among the Train staff members declared to have recognized her voice throughout the break-in.
Cops state Marin, 22, and accomplice Angelo Rey Espinosa, 19, were apprehended “within minutes” of the criminal activity.

” Marin acknowledged her involvement in the robbery and showed she wished to teach among the staff members a lesson about what might happen late at night in that part of town,” the Las Cruces Cops Department said.
Marin and Espinosa were reserved into the Dona Ana County Detention Center, where both were at first held without bond. They were due in court Tuesday; a representative for the Las Cruces Authorities Department was not immediately available to validate whether the two are still in custody.
An agent for Subway was not right away available for comment.
