BCSO searching for two suspects involved in multiple bank robberies


Citizens are encouraged to be on the lookout for two suspects involved in bank robberies in Bluffton.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office and the Bluffton Police Department are looking for James Authur Gable, 41, and John Bennett, 44, who are both wanted on outstanding arrest warrants.

A warrant was obtained for Gable in reference to the bank robbery which occurred at SunTrust Bank on 2 Westbury Park Way just after 10:45 Friday morning and a bank robbery at TD Bank on 1021 Fording Island Road at 1:30 p.m. on July 14 of this year. The warrant was obtained on Saturday for entering bank, depository or building and loan association with intent to steal; theft or solicitation of person using automated teller machine.

During the investigation, investigators came to the conclusion that the suspect fit the physical description of the TD Bank robbery suspect in Bluffton and a similar incident that occurred in Glynn County Georgia.

John Bennett is a person of interest in reference to the bank robbery; however, Bennett currently has an outstanding Family Court Bench Warrant which is unrelated to the bank robbery.

Anyone with information regarding the location of these two individuals is asked to contact Sgt. Jeff Moran at 843-575-3841, Sgt. Kelly Heany of the Bluffton Police Department at 843-227-1296 or Crimestoppers.
