Goose Creek police release more photos of armed robbery suspect

GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Investigators released more surveillance photos of a man they say robbed an advance cash business last week in Goose Creek.

The Goose Creek Police Department responded to the Advance America check cashing store on 134 St. James Ave. for an armed robbery around 3:07 p.m.

The manager said the suspect appeared to be a construction worker or road crew due to the clothes he was wearing.

Police describe the suspect as a black male, who was dressed in a reflective vest, long sleeve tan shirt under a short sleeve white shirt, dark work pants, ball cap, sunglasses and a dust mask.

The logo shown on the ballcap is from the St. Mary's County, Maryland, Oyster Festival. 

The suspect told the manager three times that he wanted to take out a loan as he approached a service counter. Authorities say the suspect then took out a handgun and pointed it at her.

The manager then gave the suspect money and was told to go to the back of the store and count to fifty. The suspect then left and was last seen running towards US 52.

Authorities describe the suspect as a 30-year-old black male with a beard wearing dark pants, a white hat and an orange vest with green stripes similar to a construction worker's vest.

If you have any information you are asked to call police at 572-5210 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
