BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – A man was arrested after deputies say he robbed a gas station in the Bonneau area early Sunday morning.
Deputies responded to the Circle K on North Highway 52 just after 6:00 a.m. where an armed robbery had occurred.
The suspect, Michael Conway, stole the cashier till containing $50. Although the clerk and customers intervened and delayed Conway’s escape, he dropped the till outside of the store and ran off.
Deputies say they located and apprehended Conway – with the help of a K9 – after he was found attempting to hide under a nearby house.
Conway was booked into the Hill-Finklea Detention Center where he faces armed robbery with a deadly weapon.
