The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office posted that the arrest was made after a citizen shared a tip that a man was spotted on Mountain View Road in Hartselle. After the tip, “Priceville, HPD and MCSO responded, saw a suspect and gave chase into the woods where the suspect was apprehended.” 

According to HPD, Nunn entered Hartselle Kroger around 10:35 a.m. and demanded money. The post said that he “stated that he had a gun and would shoot the clerk” before escaping with $2,000 in cash. The suspect was later involved in a car wreck and left the scene near Mountain View Road and Georgia Street that led to a unified search in the area by multiple law enforcement agencies.
