Police arrested one man Wednesday and are still looking for another after strong-arm robberies Tuesday night at the Danville and Stanford Wal-Marts.
Curtis Hampton, 44, of 108 Star Ave., Stanford, is in the Boyle County Detention Center today, charged with two counts of first-degree robbery and one count each of possession of marijuana and contempt of court.
State Police Detective Bill Collins and Danville Police Detective Sgt. Patrick McQueen identified Hampton as a suspect while investigating leads from both Wal-Mart robberies. Hampton's Mazda, with Kentucky license plate 110ABV, was reportedly at one of the robbery scenes.
The officers knew Hampton frequented Heather Hills and Meadow Run apartments and the Ben Ali Drive area in Danville. Officers were advised to use caution in apprehending Hampton because they believed he might try to flee or resist arrest.
