3rd suspect sought in Goose Creek robbery
GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) -- Police have identified the third suspect in a robbery that happened at the Goose Creek Radio Shack on Saint James Avenue July 28.
A spokesperson with the Goose Creek police says 21-year-old Arriel Lucille Sanders was arrested July 29 and charged with two counts of kidnapping and one count of armed robbery with a deadly weapon.
Police issued an arrest warrant for 22-year-old Kireem Jamie McCoy on July 30 in connection with the robbery. He is also charged with two counts of kidnapping and one count of armed robbery with a deadly weapon.
Now, a third arrest warrant for 20-year-old Vincent Simmons, has been issued by Goose Creek Police for armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping, conspiracy and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
According to police reports, officers responded to an armed robbery call around 9 p.m. the night of July 28.
Witnesses said employees were approached at the door by "two black males with hoodies on their heads." One of the victims told police she was then "face to face with a black male wearing a pair of pajama bottoms, white shirt, green hoodie and glasses."
According to the report, the man pushed one of the victims into the back room and told her not to move and that he had a gun. The report says the suspect then "forced Arriel Lucille Sanders to open the cages and remove the product from the cages."
The victim said the suspects told them all to get on the ground and not move, which they did.
On the way to the crime scene, investigators say they saw a "dark colored small four door vehicle, driving the opposite direction from the incident location. The vehicle had its headlights off and was weaving in and out of traffic."
According to reports that vehicle was later found and identified as belonging to a family member of Arriel Sanders. When police tried to stop the car, which they say was occupied by two young black males, the suspects took off on foot and got away.
