Bamberg police investigate armed robbery at fast-food restaurant
Monday, October 22, 2012

BAMBERG — Police are investigating an Oct. 16 armed robbery at Hardee’s restaurant on Oct. 16.

According to the incident report, two cash drawers containing an undisclosed amount of currency were taken during the 10 p.m. heist.

Descriptions of two suspects were given to police by several witnesses. One was described as a black male wearing a black or navy blue hoodie, a dark blue or black bandanna, black trousers, a white belt and black and white shoes or boots. He was carrying what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun.

The second suspect was described as a light-skinned black male wearing a tan or gray hoodie, green T-shirt, dark-colored trousers, a white belt and black shoes with white soles. He was armed with a silver, smaller-caliber, semi-automatic handgun.

No one at the restaurant was injured. Evidence was collected at the scene. Police canvassed the area in search of the suspects without success.

In other reports:

A 23-year-old Denmark man has been charged with felon in possession of a firearm and discharging a firearm inside city limits after an Oct. 13 incident on Houser Street.

Police were dispatched to a residence regarding a weapon being fired outside the home just before midnight. The man allegedly shot in the direction of a 21-year-old woman he had been dating.

There were several witnesses, including the victim’s mother, and officers were given a description of the gun (a Ruger .22) and the burgundy SUV in which the Denmark man left the scene. The victim and her mother contended that the subject was not trying to shoot the victim, but fired the weapon only “to scare her.”

Denmark police notified Bamberg officers that the suspect, who resides on Ceceile Street, was known to carry a gun. A warrant was to be obtained on the wanted man.

Police conducting a traffic stop on a driver who failed to use a turn signal on Calhoun Street discovered that the 13-year-old juvenile could not produce a driver’s license or registration. Noticing a can of Bud Light between the two front seats, officers questioned the passenger, a 54-year-old Robin Drive man who smelled strongly of alcohol.

According to the report, the passenger was overheard saying that “he was on PTI (Pre-trial Intervention) and how this was going to ruin it.” He then started talking about killing himself and went through a range of emotions. The man was placed in custody and taken to the Bamberg County Detention Center. A search of his person turned up a crack pipe in his underwear. He was charged with allowing an unauthorized driver to drive, open container, possession of drug paraphernalia and disorderly conduct (A).

The 13-year-old driver of Bridge Street was issued a summons and released to his father.
