BB&T Bank robbery suspect arrested

LEXINGTON, SOUTH CAROLINA – Lexington County detectives have arrested a Lexington man suspected of robbing the BB&T branch in Red Bank Tuesday afternoon.

Christopher Paul Sherer, 48, is charged with one count of entering a bank with intent to steal, according to arrest warrants.

“The suspect presented a note with a handwritten request for money on it to a teller,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “We received a strong lead in this case right after the robbery took place that helped us identify the suspect.

“We’ve also charged Sherer with second degree domestic violence for assaulting a female victim during an incident that happened before the bank robbery.”

Sherer is also facing a drug possession charge after investigators found crack cocaine in his hotel room when he was arrested Wednesday, according to Koon.

Sherer is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center after a judge set his bond at $91,000.
