Trio wanted for Chinese restaurant armed robbery

Deputies are on the lookout for three people wanted for an armed robbery at a Chinese restaurant in West Ashley.

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office responded to Lam's Garden on 6005D Savannah Highway in Hollywood for a hold up alarm.

The victims said that two males carrying black pistols entered the store and ordered the three restaurant workers to the ground. One of the victims was then ordered to get up and open the cash register as the suspects took the wallets of the other workers.

Both suspects then left the scene in a car with a third suspect. Investigators say a tag number for the car came back to a white 1999 Chevrolet Malibu.

The victims said that the suspects were 6-feet, weighing 160 to 180 lbs. and appeared to be scared during the robbery.
