Armed Robbery Suspects Arrested

LADY’S ISLAND, SC (March 23, 2012/11:00 AM) – Four suspects are in custody following last night’s armed robbery of a Lady’s Island restaurant.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to McDonald’s (177 Sea Island Pkwy) just after 10:30 pm last night in reference to an armed robbery occurring moments earlier. Upon arrival, deputies met with employees who advised that the store had been robbed by three suspects, two of whom were armed with handguns.

Employees reported that one suspect had ordered food. As it was being prepared, two more men entered, wearing black masks, and demanded money from the registers. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspects fled to a blue Nissan Maxima waiting in the parking lot. No employees were harmed during the incident.

Employees recognized one of the suspects as the boyfriend of a former employee, identifying him as “George,” and were able to provide deputies with a detailed description of the suspects’ vehicle. This information was immediately broadcast to all local law enforcement agencies, which resulted in the vehicle being spotted and stopped by the Port Royal Police Department. Four subjects were detained, and were subsequently identified as those involved in the robbery. Cash, two handguns, and masks were recovered during a search of the vehicle.
