Armed robbery suspect's name released by Sheriff Koon

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) Sheriff Jay Koon released the name of a suspect that was apprehended last night after being involved in the armed robbery of a Dollar General between Gaston and Cayce. According to the sheriff, Anthony Devon Nelson, 22, is charged with armed robbery after pointing a handgun at two store employees and getting away with cash, according to arrest warrants. Nelson is also charged with receiving stolen goods after deputies determined the car he used during the robbery was stolen.

“Nelson initiated a pursuit last night when he drove away from a deputy who attempted to conduct a traffic stop along Charleston Highway,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Nelson abandoned the vehicle near his Marbell Lane residence. The K-9 apprehended Nelson when he stopped complying with a deputy’s commands and tried to run into the house.”

The chase traveled about 3 miles and reached a top speed of 95 miles per hour, according to Koon. Another suspect who was with Nelson at the Dollar General is still at large.

“We’re looking for information about that second suspect,” Koon said. “Crimestoppers is the best way to share anything with us. They never take your name and you could receive up to $1,000 if your tip leads to an arrest.”
