Timmy Blake Hunter:

In an investigation that began in March, Hunter’s name came up as a possible suspect in a firearms robbery from a relatives home on the 5500 block of Sam Broadway Loop in Kannapolis. Information that Rowan County Sheriff’s Office investigators allegedly obtained in interviews with Hunter and from an intensive investigation of the robbery was presented to a grand jury on June 27th. As a result Hunter was indicted and warrants were prepared for his arrest.

In April the RFP learned that Hunter was placed on “administrative leave with pay”. On May 16th Hunter’s status was changed to “administrative leave without pay”. He is currently the subject of a Police Department internal investigation.

Hunter was formerly with the Kannapolis Police Department. He was hired by the Salisbury Police Department in 2011. He rose to the rank of Master Police Officer in February 2016. His last duty was at Salisbury High School where he served as a resource officer.
