BREWER – The manhunt has ended for a man suspected of robbing a motel in Brewer.
Anthony Yurchick, 49, of Blue Hill was arrested last night.
Police believe he’s the man who held up the Brewer Motor Inn on Wilson Street around 5:30 a.m. Monday. Officials stated the robber threatened an employee with a gun while demanding cash and then fled on foot.
Brewer police worked with Bangor police and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department to develop leads in the case. The trail led them to Yurchick who’s now charged with robbery, theft, and felony possession of a firearm by a felon.
Officials recovered evidence connected to the robbery when they searched a residence on Acme Road, just down the street from where the alleged robbery took place.
