Charles County Sheriff’s Detectives Identify Robbery Suspect
Charles County Sheriff Rex W. Coffey said good field work by detectives led to the identity of the suspect wanted in connection with the June 10 robbery of a LaPlata convenience store. During the robbery, the suspect approached a clerk, implied he had a gun and demanded money. He fled but not before a surveillance camera captured his image. Detectives canvassed the surrounding area and within a short time investigators received information that a man fitting the description of the suspect was seen at a local motel. Detectives located the man, Hunter Turner Hulon, 48, of North Carolina, and subsequently linked him to the robbery. “Our detectives were determined to get this guy identified as quickly as possible. They acted on their investigative experience and their efforts paid off. As a result, they took a felon out of our community,” said Sheriff Coffey. Hulon was charged with robbery and is being detained at the Charles County Detention Center. Detectives J. Austin, K. Gross and J. Elliott investigated.
