Police searching for suspects after robbery

Police are looking for suspects after a robbery at a business Wednesday morning in Barnwell.

Police Chief Reuben Black said three men robbed the Local Finance office (in the plaza across from Mr. B's restaurant) at 10:25 a.m. At least one of the suspects had a hand gun. Money was stolen, but the exact amount isn't clear yet. No one was injured.

The suspects were described as three black males wearing blue jeans, tennis shoes and dark hoodies, and their faces were covered. Black said the men probably fled down Hugh Street toward the BP gas station and got into a car.

A police dog was brought in to help in the search and officers combed the area along Dunbarton Boulevard after the robbery. No arrests have been made, Black said. He said police will try to get security-camera footage from businesses in the area to help in the search.

Anyone with information about the robbery should call the Barnwell Police Department at 803-259-1838.
