Greenville Armed Robbery Spree Finally Acknowledged

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office is finally admitting that the recent string of violent convenience store robberies in the area may be connected.  Authorities acknowledge they are investigating the robbery and shooting at the Kangaroo Express on Rutherford Road Tuesday night as one of nine “serial robberies” occurring in the last six weeks.

The robbery is part of a 2-man crime spree in the county, with nine hold-ups attributed to the two suspects since November 12th.  People are asked to pay close inspection to what the suspects are wearing.  Both suspects are described as black males in their 20s, about 5’ 9”, with one suspect wearing a black and orange jacket, and another wearing a white jacket with “Tokyo” on the back and multi-colored embroidery on the front.

GreenvilleOnline.com noted that the suspects wear dark pants and hoodies, and sometimes hold scarves over their faces.  The businesses robbed during the spree include “Smokin’ Joes on U.S. 25, two separate Corner Marts on White Horse Road (one of them robbed twice one month apart), Buncombe Road Mini Mart, Lil’ Cricket on Sulphur Springs Road and Willis Grocery on East Lee Road.”

The suspects have exhibited erratic behavior and should be considered armed and dangerous.  If you have any information about these crimes, please call 23-CRIME.  There is a $2,000 reward being offered for information leading to suspect arrests.
