Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says a Zanesville man is in custody in connection with an armed robbery this week. Sheriff Lutz says 24-year-old Hunter McNerney is charged in connection with the hold-up of the Exxon Gas Station on the West Pike early Tuesday morning around 1:30. Lutz says the suspect was arrested around 11:00 am that same day and is now facing one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification and one count of theft. Lutz says McNerney used a 22 caliber assault rifle during the robbery and did make off with some cash. But both items have been recovered.
