NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a deadly armed robbery that happened at a North Charleston mattress shop on Thursday morning.
Officers with the North Charleston Police Department were called to Mattress Deals off Rivers Avenue after receiving a report of a deceased person.
Richard Rios Rivera, 45, was found shot to death inside the store and said an undisclosed amount of money has been taken from the store. Investigators later identified Taylin Devon Green as a person of interest in the case.
Greene was arrested by Charleston Police early Friday morning after an armed robbery at a convenience store off Sam Rittenberg Boulevard.
“Working in conjunction with Charleston detectives, North Charleston investigators developed information to charge Greene with the murder of Mr. Rivera,” said officials with NCPD.
“It’s really satisfying knowing that they got the guy because that gives me and my family a little more peace of mind knowing that the police did their job,” said Noah Bonneau, who works nearby. “I am a little concerned, but like I said that gives us a little more peace of mind.”
Greene was booked into the Charleston County Detention Center. An updated booking photo for Greene was not immediately available.
