BLOOMING GROVE (WKOW) -- Dane County Sheriff's detectives have made an arrest in an attempted armed robbery that took place at O'Reilly Auto Parts in Blooming Grove January 28th.

Deputies were told a lone male, wearing a ski mask, entered the store and displayed a handgun.  He ordered two employees into the back room. The suspect took off in a nearby getaway vehicle.  No one was hurt and it did not appear anything was taken.

Two days after the attempt, 22-year-old Brandon Hunt, of Madison, was taken into custody.  Hunt is a suspect in several incidents, some in other jurisdictions.  In addition to the armed robbery charges, he was booked into the Dane County Jail for resisting an officer.
