A man in Indianapolis reportedly called police to report the theft of his Subway sandwich. The circumstances into the disappearance of the sandwich were not immediately clear, but police were reportedly called to the scene after the entire foot of sandwich went missing sometime around 6:30 p.m. A police report obtained by the outlet has confirmed no arrests were made. Saturday’s alleged theft mirrors that of a similar theft in December, during which a thief in Polk County, Florida stuffed a gas-station sandwich – also of the foot-long variety – in his pants before absconding on a bike. Police in Indianapolis were not immediately available to respond to a request for comment on Saturday's incident or to confirm whether they’re hoping to recover the sandwich.
