Samuel Luther of North Aurora couldn’t find his bionic left arm after he attended a modeling class in the 1600 block of South Halsted on Oct. 18, and the family thought it had been stolen out of their convertible while it was parked on that block.

However, a Subway employee called Chicago Police detectives Thursday morning and reported the arm had been discovered at the restaurant, police said.

An employee called police and told police they’d found the arm, but had just put it aside not knowing what it was, police said.

Police said the family recently ate at a Subway and they might have left the arm there. They are planning on picking up the arm Thursday.

Police said the incident is non-criminal and the family will be coming to pick up the arm.
