Two men suspected in the armed robbery of a Lexington County business are also wanted for allegedly trying to use checks also reported stolen from the business, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Two suspects described as Hispanic males allegedly robbed the La Gaviota Grocery on Augusta Highway on Jan. 10, said Lexington County media contact Capt. Adam Myrick. The suspects took cash and checks associated with a La Gaviota checking account, said Myrick, who added that one of the suspects has cashed or attempted to cash La Gaviota checks at businesses in Greenville, Kershaw and Saluda counties.
According to Myrick, that suspect used counterfeit Honduran passports and Puerto Rican identification cards when cashing the checks, adding that he’s been seen at the businesses with up to five other people in a newer Honda Accord or an old white work van.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
