Tabor-Loris men charged in three robberies
Already facing armed robbery and concealed weapons charges in South Carolina, a Tabor City area man and two from Loris have now been arrested for two more hold ups, Sgt. Robert Kegler of the Horry County Police Department said Friday.
Marckel Lamar Lewis, 21, of Pine Circle Drive, Tabor City; Jermaine Dyson, 22, of Hwy 746, Loris; and Terry Michael Gause, 19, of Flag Patch Road, Loris; were each charged Thursday with two counts each of armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Armed men entered Kangaroo convenience stores at 62nd Avenue North and at Lake Arrowhead Road Monday night, taking money and cigarettes, Kegler said. No one was hurt in those robberies.
All three men were charged earlier this week in a third armed robbery at a Myrtle Beach convenience store, also on Monday night.
Police in North Myrtle Beach stopped a vehicle that fit the description of one used in the Myrtle Beach area robberies early Tuesday. All three men were arrested on concealed weapons charges after police found guns in the car.
