NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials with the North Charleston Police Department say a 50-year-old man suspected of an armed robbery at a Walgreens surrendered to police.

Investigators say Max Cave turned himself over late Friday night. His bond was set at $101,092.

Officials say the robbery took place at Walgreens on 1861 Remount Rd around 7 p.m on Thursday.

According to police, Cave went to the cashier to make a purchase, but his card declined. He then asked the cashier if she had change. When the cashier opened the register, the suspect grabbed money and took off in a vehicle in the direction of Rivers Avenue.

An officer who was responding to the scene noticed a man matching the suspect's description driving at a high rate of speed down Rivers Avenue and Remount Road. 

An incident report states Cave led police on a high speed chase, with the suspect hitting speeds of 110 miles per hour. Cave later drove into a construction zone and got his car stuck while attempting to drive up a large mound of dirt. He was able to get out of the vehicle and escaped before authorities could catch up to him. 

Police say Cave's vehicle, a Honda CRV, was impounded.
