A Waimea man was arrested this morning for allegedly robbing a liquor store on Kauai.
Dylan Kekoa Nunies, 18, was arrested for first-degree robbery of Umi’s Store on Pokole Road at approximately 11 a.m.
Police accuse Nunies of walking into the store holding what appeared to be a hand gun and demanding money. He allegedly fled on foot and police later located him at a nearby home.
Nunies is being held in custody in lieu of $20,000 bail, and has not yet been charged.
While police searched for the suspect, who was believed to be armed, Waimea Canyon Middle and Waimea High schools were placed on lock down for about an hour.
