Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, N.C. - The Beaufort Police Department announces the arrest of 34-year-old Jeffrey Hunnings. At around 10:30 p.m. Friday, police say Hunnings entered a CVS Pharmacy on Liveoak Street. The pharmacist says the man demanded oxycotin, a controlled substance. The pharmacist says he gave Hunnings numerous bottles valued at $2,466. Hunnings then took off.

Thanks to accurate descriptions of the man, police were able to locate Hunnings at a nearby school, Beaufort Elementary School. Police say they confronted Hunnings. Captain Joseph Washington says he had to subdue the man after Hunnings attempted to run him over.

Hunnings was arrested and taken to Carteret General Hospital as a precaution. Police think Hunnings took three of the pills before he was located.

Hunnings was currently out on bond for another robbery of a pharmacy in another jurisdiction.

He is now at the Carteret County Jail under a $250,000 secure bond. Hunnings is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of stolen property, possession of a controlled substance, assault on a government official and resisting arrest.
