Durham Man Arrested on Robbery/Kidnapping Charges

Durham Man Arrested on Robbery/Kidnapping Charges

A Durham man who was shot during an armed robbery last week has been arrested on robbery, kidnapping and other felony charges in connection with the case.

The robbery was reported shortly after 4 a.m. on January 4 at Jackpot Sweepstakes at 2000 Chapel Hill Road. A male entered the business and played some games before breaking into a locked office in the business.

The man found a female employee in the office and demanded money. The employee grabbed a gun and fired it, striking the man. The two tussled over the gun and the man was able to grab it. The man again demanded money and the employee gave him cash from a register. The employee called 911 to report the incident.

Officers found the man, identified as 30-year-old Alonzo Hester of Durham, a short distance from the business. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds.

Investigators took our warrants charging Hester with robbery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping, larceny of a firearm, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and felony breaking and entering.

Hester was released from the hospital on January 6. The arrest warrants were served on him and he was placed in Durham County Jail under a $250,000 bond.

Investigators do not plan to file charges against the employee.
