WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators say a 20-year-old man accused of an armed robbery in West Ashley was located in Maryland.

The Charleston Police Department charged Demetrius Burks with two counts of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Burks was locked up at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

According to police, the U.S. Marshals Task Force located Burks in Towson, Md. on July 24. The Charleston County Sheriff's Office Extradition Team returned Burks to Charleston on Thursday.

Burks is accused of robbing two women outside their apartment at Castlewood Apartments.

The incident occurred on May 3 around 2:50 a.m. when two women were robbed as they were entering an apartment on North Castle Lane. 

Burks was featured in Live 5's Most Wanted this past June. He went before a judge Friday afternoon where bond was set at $250,000.
