Bond denied on man who police say fought K-9, committed robbery at Waffle House

Benjamin Gantt (Al Cannon Detention Center)

A man hospitalized at MUSC after a robbery at a North Charleston Waffle House is now in jail.

Records on the website of the Al Cannon Detention Center show 40-year-old Benjamin Gantt is facing four charges and a $30,000 bond following the robbery and a string of events that ended in what police describe as a fight with a police K-9 officer.

No bond is listed on the armed robbery charge. For three other charges -- failure to stop for a blue light, resisting arrest (felony) and possession of a knife during a violent crime -- there's a $10,000 bond amount for each charge.

Police say Gantt targeted the Waffle House on Aviation Avenue Tuesday morning. They are investigating the possibility he may have also been responsible for a robbery that happened at the restaurant a week prior.
