Anton Man Charged With Wayne's Robbery

New developments in the arrest of an Anton man charged with robbing a Lubbock County liquor store Monday afternoon.

Authorities arrested 32-year-old Rocky Alan Hill just before 10 p.m. Wednesday night. He is charged with aggravated robbery and is being held on a $250,000 bond.

Authorities say Hill walked into Wayne's Beer & Wine Monday afternoon, wearing a mask and carrying a shotgun. Store employees wrestled with the suspect, and got the gun, but the suspect fled.

Texas Rangers joined the investigation, believing this robbery could be connected to other robberies on the South Plains. On Tuesday, Hockley County authorities identified Hill as a possible suspect. A warrant was issued, and officers followed Hill into Lubbock County where authorities made the arrest Wednesday night.

"It was just a good, cooperative investigation a long with public citizens, it just worked out extremely well." said Sheriff David Gutierrez, with the Lubbock Co. Sheriff's Office.

Hockley County Sheriff David Kinney tells NewsChannel 11 investigators with the Texas Rangers Office have now linked hill to the other robberies.

"They called me first thing this morning and advised me that the suspect had gave a statement and he admitted to five armed robberies, which included the one here in Levelland," said Sheriff Kinney.

Coming up on NewsChannel 11 at 10, we'll tell you how this arrest is also moving one of NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted to the captured wall.
