Charleston police officers say a suspect in an armed robbery at a West Ashley convenience store surrendered himself to officers Wednesday morning.

Joshua Turner, 16, is suspected of pointing a gun at a clerk in a Kwik Stop on Sam Rittenburg Boulevard Monday just after 10 p.m.

The suspect was able to leave the business with $200 in cash, according to a report. 

Less than three hours later, a North Charleston officer was called to the Short Trip on the 2700 block of Ashley Phosphate Road after a suspect reportedly pulled a gun on a cashier and took two smoking pipes before driving off. Officers initially said they believed the same person committed the crimes. 

A spokesperson for the North Charleston Police Department said they are working with Charleston police to determine if Turner is also their suspect. 

Turner is scheduled to face a judge in bond court Thursday.
