Police searching for suspect after delivery driver robbed at gunpoint

Mount Pleasant Police are searching for a suspect after a delivery driver was robbed early this morning.

It happened just before 5:00 a.m., Tuesday morning, at the Blue Water BP on Long Point Rd. near Belle Hall. Investigators tell us the 28-year-old driver was carrying boxes of cigarettes into the store, and when he went back to get more boxes, a man came running at him with an unknown weapon yelling “give me your money, give me your money”. The victim gave the suspect his wallet, and the suspect then ran around the corner of the store and down Egypt Rd.

Police say that the suspect ran in the direction of Belle Hall neighborhood, but they were unable to apprehend them.

When police arrived, they reviewed surveillance video of the robbery which showed a man with a grey long-sleeved shirt on his face, possibly a cap on his head, and wearing dark clothing. The victim was not physically injured.
