GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - Officials with the Georgetown Police Department have identified two men taken into custody following an armed robbery at the Walmart parking lot in Georgetown.

Anthony Lamont McCray, 22, was charged with armed robbery and kidnapping, according to Maj. Nelson Brown.

The other man, 27-year-old Ivory Hilton was charged with possession of stolen property, authorities said.

“This case is still under investigation and more arrests are expected,” Chief William Pierce said. “We would like to thank the community for their assistance in bringing this case to a quick resolution.”

Police responded Wednesday at 12:40 p.m. to the Walmart parking lot where an armed robbery had been reported, Brown said.

The victim told police two men armed with a handgun got into his vehicle and robbed him of cash and told him to drive off. A short time later, the robbers got out of the victim’s vehicle and then left the area in a white sedan, Brown said.
