RICHLAND COUNTY, SC — Sheriff’s deputies are still looking for an armed robbery and carjacking suspect a year after his alleged crime, and are willing to pay for good information.
Tyrone Robinson, 21, is accused of approaching the driver of a Ford Explorer on the 1100 block of Hallbrook Drive on the morning of Dec. 29, 2011. With the help of a handgun and a second, unknown man, the men forced the driver out of the vehicle.
The carjackers drove the vehicle several days after the robbery. It has since been recovered.
The Richland County Fugitive Task Force thinks Robinson, who has a criminal history of burglary and illegal drugs, is getting help to hide from law enforcement, putting his abettors at risk of their own charges.
