  • Monday, May 19, 2014

On May 2 at 11:15, Georgetown Sheriff’s deputies were called to Not 2 Shabby on Hwy. 17 Bypass, Murrells Inlet, for an armed robbery.

The victim told police that she works late at her business drawing and went out front to her vehicle to retrieve some boxes. While carrying them into the business she saw what appeared to be a gold Impala pull into the parking lot and pull in by Backyard Birds. She entered her business but did not lock the door behind her.

While placing the boxes on the counter she heard the door buzzer behind her, indicating someone was entering the business. She saw a black male with a bandana over part of his face, armed with an automatic handgun.

He victim told police the man repeatedly asked “where it at, where it at,” while pointing the gun at the victim. According tot he incident report she told the man there was no cash in the register but the man told her “you’d better give it up or I’ll pop you.”

The man demanded she give him her pocketbook and then told her to go into the back room. The victim told police she believed the man was going to follow her into the back room and kill her. When she entered the room she heard the door buzzer again. She went into the front of the store and grabbed her phone and called 911.

While on scene, the deputies were informed the complainant’s credit card was attempted at the Kangaroo on Ocean Hwy., and Waverly Rd.

A deputy responded to search trash receptacles at the Kangaroo. He was informed he could not access surveillance video until the manager arrived at 5 a.m.

The incident is under investigation.
