Deputies: Bank Robbery Suspect Drops Driver's License Running Away
Monday, October 3, 2011

 
Richland County, SC (WLTX) -- Deputies arrested a 23-year-old man they say tried to rob a bank--but didn't actually take any money--who dropped his driver's license while running away.

According to investigators with the Richland County Sheriff's Department, Jabriel Jowan Jones tried to rob the TD Bank at 8850 Farrow Road at about 5:21 p.m. Wednesday.

Deputies were told that Jones gave an employee a written note that demanded money from the bank during the robbery attempt. According to investigators, Jones ran away from the bank with no money, and in the process, he dropped his driver's license.

Sheriff Leon Lott said that deputies received "an excellent description" of the vehicle from witnesses, which led to a deputy spotting Jones driving on Broad River Road.

After that, Jones led deputies on a vehicle pursuit from Broad River Road back to Farrow Road at Gateway Corporate Boulevard, according to deputies. He was then arrested after he was stopped.

Deputies say they found a gun that belonged to Jones inside the car he was driving, and investigators are working to determine whether or not the gun was connected to the crime.

Jones was arrested and charged with entering a bank with the intent to steal money and failure to stop for blue lights. He is detained at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
