Georgetown County officials searching for suspects in armed robbery

(Murrells Inlet, SC) — The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects who are wanted in connection with an armed robbery which occurred at the Kangaroo Store #790 located at 658 Wachesaw Road in the Murrells Inlet Community of Georgetown County.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. on March 29, 2016, two (2) suspects approached the front of the store where the employee was on the telephone and ordered the victim to enter the business. The suspects displayed what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money. The two suspects then fled the store in a southern direction.

A witness at the traffic light observed the suspects exit the store quickly, flee around the south end of the business, and enter a vehicle. The witness followed the vehicle until the stop sign at Sunnyside Avenue. At which time, a suspect in the passenger seat leaned out of the window and discharged what the witness believed to be a handgun. No one was injured during either incident.

Anyone that can identify the suspect or has any information about the robbery is urged to call the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office at (843) 546-5101.
