That's the way the cookie crumbles..
Jessica Roman apparently wanted more than her just desserts.
But when she didn't get the money police say she demanded in a note to the cashier at a Subway restaurant in South Rich- mond, she swiped a cookie.
And that's where the caper crumbled.
Police say that around 8 p.m. Wednesday, a witness spotted the 22-year-old Midlothian woman running from the restaurant at 3708 Stony Point Road and into a waiting cab.
Police were called, and a short time later, officers located the cab and arrested the woman in a nearby supermarket.
Police spokeswoman Cynthia Price said Roman had earlier paid for a sandwich at the restaurant but told the taxi driver she needed to go back and get a cookie.
When she returned, Price said Roman handed the clerk a note demanding money from the register. Price said the clerk refused, so Roman grabbed a cookie and then ran back out to the cab, whose driver had no idea what was going on.
Roman was charged with robbery, a felony punishable by a maximum penalty of life in prison.
Investigators did not release the identity of the cookie.
Roman's lawyer did not return a call seeking comment last night.
Price said Roman was carrying more than $15 in cash when she was apprehended.
The cookie cost $1.
She never got to eat it.
