Charges Filed in Norfolk Hotel Robbery

NORFOLK – Norfolk police have identified the man they say was responsible for robbing the Norfolk Hampton Inn back in January.

Norfolk Police Capt. Michael Bauer identified 28-year old Justin Kinnear as the man authorities believe was responsible for the armed robbery. Bauer says investigation following the robbery identified Kinnear as the suspect.

He was located in a Louisiana jail, where DNA provided by authorities there matched a DNA sample taken from clothing recovered at the scene.

Police submitted an arrest warrant for Kinnear on Monday, charging him with robbery and two counts of terroristic threats. He’s currently being held in the Lancaster County Corrections Center.
