A suspect in three Richland County armed robberies has been arrested, Sheriff Leon Lott said Monday.
Steven Michael Abbott, 20, was arrested thanks to citizens giving detailed descriptions of him and his getaway vehicle, Lott said.
Citizen help allowed officers to locate Abbott and his vehicle at his home, where he was arrested without incident.
The suspect in the three robberies wore the same clothing each time, used the same handgun and demanded only cash, Lott said. His clothing was a hooded dark sweat shirt, jeans and dark gloves.
The robberies Abbot is charged with are:
- Sammi’s Deli, 7210 Broad River Road on Nov. 5.
- The GameStop, 7362-A Two Notch Road, on Nov. 22.
- A beauty supply store at 6017 Two Notch Road, on Nov. 27.
