A Temecula man suspected of robbing a Murrieta sandwich shop was behind bars Thursday evening, according to police.

Juan Jose Castillo, 28, was arrested at 5:30 p.m. Thursday inside Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, stated Murrieta police Lt. Tony Conrad, in a news release.

Castillo is suspected of entering Submarina California Subs, 33040 Antelope Road in Murrieta, just before 6:20 p.m. Wednesday and demanding cash from the employees.

Police said no one was injured during the incident in which an undetermined amount of cash was taken.

The suspect was described by employees as 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighing between 230 and 250 pounds, police Sgt. Dave Baca said at the time.

He had a darker complexion and possibly light-colored eyes, and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, yellow Lakers shorts and a blue bandana over his face, Baca said.

Employees told police the robber drove away in a gray Nissan Armada.

A short time later, that SUV was found abandoned with flat tires near the intersection of Scott and Menifee roads, about a mile from the sandwich shop.

Police responded to investigate, but the suspect was not immediately located.

Thursday evening, Conrad said Murrieta police detectives arrived at Pechanga Casino, where they took Castillo into custody “without incident.”

"Detectives recognized the name of the registered owner of the Nissan Armada as someone who associated with Castillo," Conrad said. "Special enforcement team detectives then tracked Castillo to Pechanga."

Castillo was booked at Southwest Detention Center near Murrieta on suspicion of robbery, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a hypodermic needle and probation violation, according to Conrad.

Jail booking information indicates that Castillo was released Friday on $30,000 bond and was due back in court Jan. 30, 2014.

@Allen G -- Spoken like a true sociopath. Seriously, see a doctor.
Allen G February 15, 2014 at 01:35 AM
Justice For All... what I like about you is that you never disappoint. Always full of shit.

@Allen G -- ... says the man with the soiled adult diaper in his mouth...
Allen G February 15, 2014 at 03:11 PM
Justice For All... sorry, what's that you say? couldn't understand you with my cock in your mouth.
Justice For All February 15, 2014 at 09:58 PM
@Allen G -- huh... I thought that was a Tic Tac. Anyway, when you're done licking old women's hemorrhoids you really should see your shrink about these sexual fantasies that you are manifesting on the Patch. You have deep seated psychosis... and you're a fucktard.
Justice For All February 15, 2014 at 10:04 PM
@Allen G -- Here's an idea... why don't you go rob a Submarina. Then maybe you could hook up with Juan Jose Castillo in prison. I bet the two of you would make a wonderful pair of human toilets.
ChrisG February 15, 2014 at 10:05 PM
@justice, why do you bother with him?
Justice For All February 15, 2014 at 10:14 PM
@ChrisG -- Slow news day. Plus he is such an easy target.
Allen G February 15, 2014 at 11:22 PM
Justice For All... I like when you use Tic Tacs when you blow me. Thank buuuuddddyyyyy ;)
Allen G February 15, 2014 at 11:27 PM
I think Juan Jose Castillo and I have a couple things in common. We're both victims of rampant financial fraud, both victims of a kleptocracy, and we both like sub sandwiches. I'd have no problem whatsoever talking to this guy, and trying to see if I could help him. Obviously you don't want to help him Justice For All... ya know Justice, Hitler would be proud of you.
Justice For All February 16, 2014 at 12:13 AM
@Allen G -- ... don't forget that you also share that sociopath thing. I'm sure Juan would love to have you as his boyfriend. You two could cuddle and hold each other's tic tac. Sieg heil.
Allen G February 16, 2014 at 01:55 AM
Justice For All... I'd rather cuddle with Mr. Castillo than a nazi like you.
Justice For All February 16, 2014 at 02:34 AM
@Allen G -- boohoo :(
Allen G February 16, 2014 at 03:16 AM

Justice For All February 16, 2014 at 03:34 AM
Does my answer make a difference? You seem to enjoy calling me whatever you like. Sieg heil mon frère fuktard!
Allen G February 16, 2014 at 03:40 AM
I like it when you speak german and french at the same time Justice. If I could supply you a drink right now I would, in spite of all your shortcoming.
Justice For All February 16, 2014 at 03:59 AM
Thanks anyway. I'm a little too old for sippy boxes.
Allen G February 16, 2014 at 04:03 AM

Allen G February 16, 2014 at 05:20 PM
Andrea, don't worry about Pat (its another one of Justice's accounts, he has at least 4 accounts on Patch).
andrea c February 17, 2014 at 03:09 PM

Justice For All February 17, 2014 at 05:57 PM
@Allen G -- Sorry to burst your bubble, but "Justice For All" is the only account name that I post under on the Patch. In fact, I use the same moniker on several different news sites. I don't know who is messing around with andrea c's account, but I wouldn't put it past YOU to be responsible. I've also noticed that someone seems to have attacked the accounts of 'Steve Newman', 'Brenda', and various other regular commentators in recent months. Once again, I don't know who is responsible for this petty behavior, but I assure you that I detest it as much as anyone. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I haven't the need, desire or time to play childish games. I've recently flamed your alter ego for the amusement of troll bashing. That's it. But I do find it interesting that this type of hacked/faked account activity rises after a couple of people have 'sparred' (ex. Newman vs. Kleiner) for awhile in comments and degraded to ad hominem attacks. I've also noticed that "jesus" has miraculously appeared on the Patch in an apparent effort to return some decorum to the comments section. (Who would have known that Jesus reads the Patch?) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- @andrea c -- Sorry to hear that your account was hacked but rest assured that I had no involvement. My opinions about violent criminals remains the same. Unless you happen to take up a life of crime, I have no need to discuss the matter any further.
andrea c February 17, 2014 at 06:17 PM
To Justice for all thanks for the comment you wrote to me I had no idea that there are others out there that are also getting their account messed with but whoever it is as i stated before get a life. Just to let you know I have NEVER been in any type of criminal situation my family has but as i child i was able to make a promise to myself early on in my life that i would never involve myself in any such activities for myself and my children as well as my family............
Allen G February 17, 2014 at 09:57 PM
Trollolololololol.... hahahahaha you're so full of shit Justice For All.
Justice For All February 17, 2014 at 10:03 PM
Likewise Allen. Get a life.
