Deputies were told the offender was last seen driving toward Yadkin County in an older model multicolored truck. Investigators obtained the license plate number and learned the registered owner of the vehicle lived in Yadkin County.

Yadkin County deputies tried to find the vehicle and made contact with the registered owner. They determined that Caleb Charles Hutchens, 19, of East Bend, had the vehicle and was responsible for the armed robbery.

The WSPD obtained a warrant for Hutchens’ arrest for one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon on Thursday, and deputies responded to several places in Yadkin County in an attempt to find Hutchens or the vehicle. 

Deputies found Hutchens and the vehicle at a home in East Bend. Hutchens was arrested, served with the outstanding warrant, and placed under a $250,000.00 secured bond. 

While Hutchens was being apprehended, investigators gathered additional information about people who allegedly helped him evade apprehension.
