Armed robber caught on camera in convenience store heist

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A brazen, armed suspect was captured robbing an Augusta Road convenience store last week, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.

The suspect, dressed in a hooded sweatshirt and a black bandana covering his face, entered the Circle K on Augusta Road around 2 a.m. last Wednesday and demanded money from the clerk.

The armed robber, described as about 6' tall and between 25 to 35 years old, fled on foot. However, detectives say a car that was seen leaving the store shortly before the robbery may be connected to this case.
