The police department says a short time after the robbery, the suspect was involved in a wreck and left the scene near Mountain View Road and Georgia Street.

About 7:30 p.m., officers from the Hartselle and Priceville police departments and Morgan County deputies found the suspect hiding in the woods, police say. 

Officials say they received numerous tips during the day, and a citizen told an officer they saw a person on Mountain View Road, which led to the chase into the woods with the suspect and his capture.

Nunn Jr. was arrested for robbery first-degree and given a $60,000 bond.
