PAWLEYS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Authorities are looking for a man they say held up a gas station in Pawleys Island early Monday morning.

Deputies with the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office responded to Gullies Gas Station, located near Martin Luther King Road and US Highway 17, just after the armed robbery occurred around 4 a.m.

Video surveillance from the scene shows a black male armed with what appeared to be handgun threaten the store clerk and demand money from the safe and cash register.

The safe was locked but the robber did make it out with cash from the register.

The suspect is described as a black male approximately 25-30 years of age, between 5'7" and 5'10" in height, and weighing approximately 200-215 pounds. The suspect was wearing khaki shorts and a black shirt with a black and white or blue and white bandana covering his face.

The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office Bloodhound Tracking Team led officers  an open area on Martin Luther King Road, but then lost the scent.

Anyone that can identify the suspect or has any information about the robbery is asked to call the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office at (843) 546-5102.
