Times-Record - - News -

PRE­STON — A Hur­lock man is be­ing held with­out bond in the Caro­line County De­ten­tion Cen­ter af­ter he was ar­rested and charged in con­nec­tion with two rob­beries on con­sec­u­tive nights in Pre­ston, the Caro­line County Sher­iff’s Of­fice said in a news re­lease.

Nathaniel Bryan Hub­bard, 29, of Hur­lock, faces two counts each of rob­bery and theft be­tween $100 and $1,500, and one count each of armed rob­bery, fir­stand sec­ond-de­gree as­sault, fourth-de­gree theft, and reck­less en­dan­ger­ment.

Po­lice said they re­sponded at 9:09 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, for a panic alarm at Mike’s Liquor Store at 163 Main St. in Pre­ston, where deputies learned a white man wear­ing a black jacket, jeans and white shoes had en­tered the store and de­manded money from an em­ployee.

The em­ployee gave the man an undis­closed amount of money, a pack of cig­a­rettes and a lighter. The man then fled on foot from the store.

The de­scrip­tion matched that of the sus­pect who com­mit­ted a rob­bery the night be­fore, Tues­day, March 27, at Shore Stop at 223 Main St., Pre­ston.

In that in­ci­dent, po­lice said the man or­dered an em­ployee to give him money from the reg­is­ter af­ter re­quest­ing a pack of cig­a­rettes. Po­lice said the em­ployee no­ticed a bulge in the sus­pect’s pocket that re­sem­bled the ap­pear­ance of a hand­gun. The em­ployee gave the sus­pect an undis­closed amount of money from the reg­is­ter and a pack of cig­a­rettes.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieved the same sus­pect com­mit­ted both rob­beries. In­for­ma­tion was de­vel­oped through mul­ti­ple sources, lead­ing to Hub­bard be­ing iden­ti­fied as a sus­pect.

On Thurs­day, March 29, detectives re­sponded to an ad­dress in Dorch­ester County, where Hub­bard was taken into cus­tody with­out in­ci­dent.
