Initially, when the Rebels broke through the blast doors of the bunker, Hewex was captured and forced to move out of way at gunpoint. When the Rebels became overrun, Hewex stole Chewbacca's Bowcaster.
Fooled by Han Solo (posing as Major Marquand), Hewex ordered three squads to help search for the Rebels. Solo and his team then infiltrated the bunker and destroyed it. It is unknown what happened to Hewex.
