Tuesday, June 5, 2012

LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives are seeking help from citizens in identifying a man who robbed a Wal-Mart Supercenter at 1780 South Lake Drive near Lexington at about 4:36 p.m. on Saturday, June 2. The man stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the store.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives on Tuesday, June 5 released information on the man who committed the robbery. Witnesses told detectives that the man, who was white, is between the ages of 45 and 55. The man is between 5-foot-10 and 6-feet and weighs between 190 pounds and 210 pounds.

At the time of the robbery, witnesses told deputies that the man was wearing black athletic shoes, white socks, light-colored shorts, light orange or pink sleeveless T-shirt, light blue baseball cap with an oval emblem on the front of the cap and sunglasses, Metts said. The man had a goatee.

The man fled in a white, extended-cab pickup truck that was driven by another person, whom detectives have not yet identified, Metts said.

Metts asked anyone with information about the robbery, the man who committed the robbery or the person who drove the get-away vehicle to call the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
