GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - Investigators have arrested four people accused of asking change for a $100 bill and taking off with the money.

The Georgetown Police Department arrested 19-year-old Kyjuan Ramon River of Georgetown, 20-year-old Nisean Jair Durant of Little River, 25-year-old Jeffery Johnnill Hemingway of Georgetown, and 28-year-old Racquel Monae Giles of Andrews.

Their arrest stems from an investigation last Friday night at 9:35 p.m. when police responded to the Tobacco Mart in Maryville for a strong armed robbery.

A report states that the suspects asked the victim for change for a $100 bill.

“When the victim agreed to give them a $100.00 dollars in change the suspects grabbed the money and drove off,” police said. “The robbery took place in the parking lot.”

The suspects were all charged with strong arm robbery, with Giles also facing a first-degree driving under suspension charge.
