North Charleston man sentenced in mail carrier robbery

COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - A North Charleston man was sentenced in federal court Thursday on charges of robbing a postal carrier.

Terron Lamar Bryant, 27, was sentenced to 130 months, the US Attorneys Office stated.

During a plea hearing, prosecutors presented evidence that showed that on June 27, 2009, Bryant approached a US Postal Service mail carrier, pulled a gun on her and ordered her back into her vehicle. Bryant stole the postal worker's personal bag.

A tip from CrimeStoppers led to Bryant's arrest five days later.
