Deputies seek armed robbery suspects

BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WTOC) - Beaufort County Sheriff's deputies are seeking two armed robbery suspects that robbed the Valero gas station on Parris Island gateway.

Deputies reponded just before 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday night. When they arrived, they met the 37-year-old store clerk who said he had just been robbed by two men with a handgun.

Deputies say the clerk was standing behind the counter when the two suspects, both wearing masks, approached the counter and pointed a handgun at him and demanded that he get on the floor. The suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the clerk's wallet and the store's cash register. They also took an undetermined amount of cigarettes.

Both suspects fled the store towards the Palomino Drive area.

The clerk was not injured.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to call Investigator Sgt. J. Fraser at 843.255.3416 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843.524.2777.
