Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) Officers with the Cayce Department of Public Safety have arrested a man they say robbed the Marathon Gas on Airport Boulevard last night. Police Chief Byron Snellgrove of the Cayce Department of Public Safety said that the suspect was taken into custody after a short search. He identified the man as Justin Michael Walker, 27.
Last night at approximately 10:00 p.m., Walker went into the Marathon station and presented a knife to the clerk demanding money. He then fled the scene. Officers converged on the store, set up a perimeter, began to gather evidence, and search the nearby area for the suspect. Walker was taken into custody sometime later.
Walker is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center where he is awaiting a bond hearing on charges of armed robbery.
