Jonathan Hummel in Police Custody

Johnathan Hummel

A suspect who had remained at-large since December 20th in the Knox CVS armed robbery incident, is now in the Starke County Jail. Jonathan Hummel is facing charges of Dealing a Narcotic Drug, two counts of Armed Robbery, Resisting Law Enforcement, Criminal Mischief, Forgery, Attempted Forgery, and Theft. He is being held under a $500,000 surety bond. The other suspect, Nathan Hummel, was arrested at the Raymond Hummel residence on Union Road in Marshall County after the incident occurred.

It is alleged that on Tuesday, December 20th, Jonathan Hummel, along with Nathan Hummel, entered the CVS store wearing disguises and held one store employee at knife-point and the other demanded prescriptions from the pharmacist at knife-point. The pharmacist ran to the back of the store and the suspect reportedly jumped over the counter and removed several thousand dollars worth of prescription drugs from the pharmacy. The suspects then left the store and the employees called 911.

The pair fled to Marshall County and stopped at 12404 Upas road, bailed out of the car and ran into the woods. A K9 searched for the suspects but they weren’t found but several prescription bottles that were taken from CVS were found near the vehicle. The investigation led officers to the Raymond Hummel residence on Union Road and police learned that Nathan Hummel was in a closet at the residence. Police found him and ordered him to the ground but when he exited the closet, he took an officer to the ground and attempted to take his gun. Hummel was then tazed and taken into custody. Johnathan Hummel fled from the scene and wasn’t captured until this week while in Kentucky.
