Robbery suspect arrested in E’town


A second suspect in an April 2018 robbery inside an Elizabethtown home was arrested Mon­day night at a residence in the 600 block of Westport Road in Eliza­beth­town.

Christopher Seawright, 21, of Mount Washington, was wanted in connection to an April 26 robbery in which a teenager allowed Seawright into a home where she was staying. A warrant was issued for Seawright’s arrest a day after the alleged robbery.

Seawright and the woman, Mariah Al­va­rado, 19, of Elizabethtown, were indicted in June 2018 on complicity to commit first-degree robbery. Alvarado was arrested April 26, 2018.

Seawright was a participant, authorities believe, after Alvarado, a friend of a family, “unlocked the entry door to the residence, while she was staying there, allowing two males to enter the residence” at approximately 4:40 a.m. April 26, according Seawright’s arrest warrant.

The warrant said there was “confirmed electronic communication concerning the incident between” Alvarado and Seawright. The warrant said the pair planned the robbery including taking money on a dresser in the bedroom.

Complicity to commit first-degree robbery is a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted.

Seawright is being held in lieu of a $75,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center.

He is scheduled to appear June 21 in Hardin District Court.

Seawright also faces several other charges not related to the alleged April 2018 case, including trafficking in marijuana less than 8 ounces and an additional first-degree robbery charge.
