Arrest made in Scam

On Thursday, May 21, 2009, Sgt. L. Witt of the Martinsburg Police Department arrested Aaron Hudson on a count of Obtaining Money by False Pretenses, stemming from an incident occurring on 05/07/09. During the incident an elderly couple was approached by a male suspect at an area business who advised them that their vehicle had a mechanical problem. The suspect then advised the couple that he would fix their vehicle for free but that he needed $100 for the part. The couple provided the suspect with the money and waited while he left to get the part. The suspect never returned.

Based upon his investigation, Sgt. Witt was able to determine that the suspect was Aaron Hudson and was able to obtain an arrest warrant from Magistrate Miller.

Aaron Hudson was arraigned before Magistrate Overington and was given a $5,000 cash only bond. He is currently incarcerated in the Eastern Regional Jail.

Anyone with similar incidents to the aforementioned are urged to contact the Martinsburg Police Department at 304-264-2100 to report it.
