One arrested, two sought after Monday night robbery of SC delivery driver

Maleeke Antoine Myers, 18

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office arrested one man and is searching for two others in connection with a strong armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver Monday night.

Deputies first received reports of a delivery driver being robbed in the 200 block of Gibbons Street shortly after 11 p.m. Monday.  Upon arrival, deputies were informed a 31-year-old man had allegedly been assaulted by three suspects during a delivery to what ultimately turned out to be a vacant house, where the suspects allegedly stole a wallet, pizza and a cell phone from the victim.

Officers from the agency’s K-9 unit were called to the scene, and were able to track one of the suspects, 18-year-old Maleeke Antoine Myers of 209 Independence Avenue, to his nearby home.  Two other suspects, described at this time only as African-American males in their late teens to early twenties, remain at large.

Myers was charged with strong arm robbery and criminal conspiracy.  He is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.

The incident remains under investigation.  Anyone with any information into this incident is asked to call either the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 436-2000, or Crime Stoppers at (803) 436-2718.
