Two arrested in bank robbery conspiracy dubbed "The Big Lick"
Friday, May 11, 2012

 
KERSHAW COUNTY, SC - Two men were arrested in Kershaw County in connection with planning a bank robbery or armored car heist they called "The Big Lick."

The Kershaw County Sheriff's Office says they received a tip on Monday that Danny Burch, Jr. and William C. Means were planning to rob a Camden bank.

Days later, deputies received information that the two were moving into Kershaw County from Lancaster County and that there was an active warrant on Means from the state Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon.

Deputies intercepted Means and Burch as they drove into Kershaw County along with Russell Roberts. All three were arrested following a traffic stop.

During questioning, Means and Burch admitted to their plans. As for Roberts, investigators discovered he had stolen vehicles from Camden, Kershaw County, Elgin, York County and Darlington counties.

Means and Burch have been charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery, first degree burglary, breach of trust, and forgery.

Although deputies say Roberts knew about Means and Burch's plan, he will not be charged in connection with it. Instead, Roberts is charged with breach of trust and there are several outstanding warrants for him from other agencies.
