HUEYTOWN,  Ala. – Police say a customer who wanted his money back went on a robbery spree, taking money from four Subway restaurants in as many days.

The teenager was allegedly upset after his diet didn’t work.

Officers say it’s been a week of revenge for 18-year-old Zachary Torrence on Subway restaurants.

Police say Torrence targeted four restaurants in four days in four different cities.

Officers say in each chase, the armed suspect had the same long dreadlocks, a black Nike shirt, and distinctive bright orange shoes.

Authorities arrested Torrence, and they say he confessed to all the robberies.

Police say he  told the detectives he had spent a sum of money with Subway, trying the sub diet — the Jared diet — and it hadn’t worked for him, and he felt like he should get his money back.
