HyunJin Kim was arrested Monday and charged with 11 counts, including first-degree robbery, conspiracy, possession of a firearm during a felony, wearing a disguise during the commission of a felony, and offensive touching. The acts allegedly occurred at a high-stakes game at a country club in Dover.
According to an Associated Press story printed at the dailytimesonline.com:
“Mr. Kim is not indicative of the caliber of troopers we have serving the citizens of this state… Mr. Kim is an aberration to the men and women of this division,” said state police superintendent Col. Thomas MacLeish.
Authorities were still searching for three other men believed to be involved in the Feb. 22 early morning robbery at the Wild Quail Golf and Country Club in Wyoming.
According to investigators, three masked men armed with handguns and a shotgun burst into the clubhouse and confronted a dozen people, including Kim, who were playing poker. The card players were ordered to lie on the ground, where they were bound and had their faces covered. Investigators said two of the victims were assaulted and received minor injuries.
The suspects stole about $10,000, as well as cell phones, credit cards and keys from the victims before fleeing in a car.
Kim had been a state trooper for two years. He has been suspended and is being held in lieu of bail.
