FHPA Sgt. Wayne Hunter

FHPA Sgt. Wayne Hunter was assisting on an FHP detail in Ocala when some employees from a nearby restaurant ran up to him and shouted "stop that man, he just robbed us". The alleged suspect was walking across the parking lot as Sgt. Hunter identified himself and commanded the suspect to stop. The suspect began to walk faster and a foot pursuit ensued.

Sgt. Hunter chased the man approximately three blocks and was assisted by a citizen in apprehending the suspect. The man was placed in handcuffs and told he was being detained until other officers arrived. Officers from the Ocala Police Department and FHP Sgt. Rick Norris arrived on scene. After receiving information from witnesses and questioning the suspect, he was placed under arrest by the Ocala Police Department and charged with Strong Armed Robbery.

A subsequent search of the suspect revealed drugs in his possession. Congratulations to FHPA Sgt. Wayne Hunter for being alert and apprehending an armed robbery suspect!
