Suspect in Carlsbad robberies arrested
A San Marcos man was jailed Thursday on suspicion of carrying out armed robberies at two Carlsbad eateries in recent weeks.
Deputy U.S. marshals arrested 38-year-old Edward Olivieri at his Daisy Lane home about 7:30 a.m., despite his attempt to hide inside the residence, Carlsbad police Sgt. Mickey Williams said.
Olivieri allegedly threatened employees with a pistol and forced them to lie on the floor while robbing a Subway sandwich shop in the 2500 block of El Camino Real and a Pita Pit restaurant in the 300 block of Carlsbad Village Drive on the evenings of March 8 and April 20, respectively.
Following the second holdup, police and California Highway Patrol officers pulled over a car matching the description of the thief’s getaway vehicle on southbound Interstate 5 in La Costa, according to Williams. When the driver — later identified as Olivieri’s wife, Anna — pulled over, a man jumped out, ran off and escaped.
Anna Olivieri, 39, was arrested and booked on suspicion of commercial robbery.
On Monday, Carlsbad police detectives obtained a warrant for Edward Olivieri’s arrest, the sergeant said.
