Armed Robbery Suspect Apprehended in Warwick

Alert eyewitnesses to an armed robbery have helped Warwick police catch the suspect.  Witnesses to the robbery at a Valero gas station on April 16th led police to identify Kenneth G. Hassell , 48, of Johnston, by providing a description of the suspect’s vehicle.  Police then located a vehicle in Johnston that matched the description through a search of registry records.   

Cranston police were also notified of the arrest because of multiple robberies in their city in the last few weeks involving a vehicle of the same description.

Hassell was charged with 1st degree robbery by the Warwick Police and 4 charges of 1st degree robbery by the Cranston police and has been remanded to the ACI after his arraignment in Kent County District court.
