SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities made an arrest following a Monday morning bank robbery in Summerville.
Officers with the Summerville Police Department (SPD) responded to reports of a robbery at First Citizen’s Bank on Old Trolley Road. Dispatch advised officers that the suspect had fled with a stack of cash.
A witness at the bank provided officers with a suspect description — that person, later identified as Avery Clark, was located at a Walmart off Dorchester Road.
“Clark had changed clothes; however, he had distinctive tattoos and shows, which aided in quickly identifying him,” police said.
Several bills were located on a sidewalk and in the grass while law enforcement searched the area.
Clark was charged with entering a bank with the intention to steal, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
No injuries were reported. Clark was taken to the Dorchester County Detention Center.
