Georgetown police have arrested one of the two men they say robbed the Maryville Kangaroo convenience store on June 19, 2012.
Police Capt. Nelson Brown says 29-year-old David Devon Grey of 461 Mercantile Road McClellanville was arrested Friday. He is charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Last year, police said the clerk at the store was reloading a coffee machine near the back of the store when a man wearing a bandana over his face walked in.
The clerk said the man was running towards him while pointing a handgun at his face and chest.
The robber ordered the clerk to “go to the register and open it up,” the incident report states.
While walking to the register, the victim saw a second man who was wearing all black clothing but was not armed. That man is the one who removed the money from the register as the victim kept his hands in the air, the report states.
The masked man then pointed the gun at the victim’s face and ordered him to open the safe. When the robbers were informed only managers could open the safe, they ran out the door.
Jail records indicate Grey was released Saturday under an $11,000 bond.
