JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD) – Charleston County deputies have arrested a man connected to an armed robbery of a Dollar General on Johns Island that happened early March.

James Joseph Wilson, 45, was arrested and charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Around 4:20 p.m., authorities responded to the business for a reported armed robbery but the suspect had already fled the scene.

CCSO said that K-9 deputies and helicopters assisted in the search.

Wilson is currently held at the Charleston County Detention Center.
