HICKORY, NC (WBTV) - A crime spree ended at a Hickory motel Friday with the arrest of two men.
Rocky Johnson, 35, of Johnson City, Tennessee is charged with robbing First Citizens Bank in the Asheville area on October 23. He is also charged with armed robbery and 7 counts of 2nd degree kidnapping for holding up a Bojangles in Oteen on October 25.
William Laws, 50, of Elizabethton, Tennessee is charged with aiding and abetting armed robbery for the First Citizens Bank robbery. Laws is currently hospitalized in Hickory. He will be transported back to Asheville as soon as his condition improves.
The pair, along with a woman, were picked up at the Motel 6 off State Road 2267 just before 7:30 a.m. Friday.
It's unclear if the trio were just passing through or planned to continue their crime spree in Hickory.
Johnson hid from cameras and struggled with Asheville Police as they prepared to take him back to the area. When asked if he committed the robberies, Johnson shouted "I didn't rob nobody!"
Laws was wheeled out on a stretcher and hid under a sheet. He would not answer reporter questions.
Asheville Police Public Information Officer Lt. Dave Romick told WBTV good investigative work by multiple agencies led police to the Motel 6.
The men are also wanted in connection to several more armed robberies in South Carolina and Eastern Tennessee.
