Tiffin couple held in holdup of Oregon pizza shop

BLADE STAFF

A husband and wife accused of robbing an Oregon pizza shop were behind bars Thursday.

Nathan Hunker, 29, and Victoria Kinn-Hunker, 20, of Tiffin accused of robbing Little Caesars Pizza, 2535 Starr Ave., are charged with aggravated robbery and complicity to aggravated robbery, respectively, Oregon police Sgt. Kelly Thibert said.

They are expected to be arraigned today in Oregon Municipal Court.

Police have said that a man went into the shop at 2:47 p.m. Aug. 14 armed with a chrome revolver and demanded cash from the clerk.

The man fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash and got into a vehicle, driven by a woman, parked nearby.

Sergeant Thibert said detectives had help in solving the case from the clerk, who was able to get several characters from the license plate of the getaway vehicle, and from Facebook, where department officials posted surveillance video of the robbery.

The pair were arrested in Tiffin after authorities executed a search warrant of their residence in Tiffin.

The Seneca County Drug Task Force-METRICH Enforcement Unit, along with additional officers from the Tiffin Police Department, reported finding heroin, hypodermic needles, and other drug paraphernalia, as well as additional evidence suspected to be related to the Oregon robbery, when they searched the West Market Street residence Wednesday.
