Sheriff's Office Seeks Help in Identifying Robber

web posted May 29, 2014

EDGEFIELD The Edgefield County Sheriff's Office released video taken during the early morning robbery at the Dodges Store on Augusta Road Sunday. In the video the driver of the truck pulls up between the gas pumps and the store and then breaks out the glass in the door. In a matter of seconds the thief grabs two cases of Bud Light beer, loads them into the truck and flees.

The truck is a newer model white Ford F150 Lariat extended cab 4WD with a black tool box in the bed. The driver is seen in the extended video driving into the parking lot with the driver's door toward the store and then leaving only to return a short time later. This time the truck is facing the other way and the driver walks around the truck and appears to get something out of the passenger side of the truck.

The person then turns their back to the door and uses the tool to bust out the glass, crawls inside and takes the two cases of beer placing them in the passenger side of the truck and then fleeing the scene.

Sheriff's Investigators say they are not sure if the suspect is wearing a mask or not due to the quality of the video. Other cameras are clearer, but are taken from different angles.

Anyone with information on the truck or the suspect is asked to call the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office at 803-637-5337. You do not have to give your name to provide information.

A video of the actual robbery takes less than 10 seconds to occur and can be seen here. (MP4 format)
