Most Wanted: Benjamin Gathers


Charleston County sheriff's deputies are looking at 27 year old Benjamin Gathers.

 Gathers is wanted on charges of armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime in connection with a May, 2011 armed robbery of a Chinese restaurant in Hollywood.

"Pointing a weapon at someone makes you a pretty dangerous person, you just don't care," said Detective Christina Smith.

 Smith said gathers and two alleged accomplices got away with a couple hundred bucks from the holdup.

According to Smith, Gathers struck again about three months ago.

He allegedly broke into a landscape business, stole items and took them to a pawn shop.

"We have just not been able to catch up to him, so obviously he has just been continuing doing the same things that he's out there doing," Smith said.

She said Gathers may be getting some help hiding.

"We had some phone contact with him. When we get on the phone, a phone number we do have, he says it's not him. It's a possibility it is," the detective said.

Gathers stands 6'1" and weighs about 165 pounds.

His last known address was on Gathers road in Hollywood.

He may be staying in the Remount Road area of North Charleston.

The fugitive may be driving a 2005, dark colored Honda Accord.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
