South Congaree convenience store robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night

September 27, 2018

South Congaree, SC (Paul Kirby) The GS Mini Mart at 668 Main Street in South Congaree was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night. The robbery occurred at approximately 9:15 pm just before strong thunderstorms rolled through the area.


According to South Congaree Police Chief Josh Shumpert, a black male in his 30’s who is believed to be approximately 5”11”, walked in and held the store up. He arrived as a passenger in a smaller blue sedan type vehicle. He presented a small silver handgun at the counter, demanded money from the clerk, and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. He then returned to the passenger seat of the car where he got back in while the driver fled the scene.  


The suspect was caught on camera. Chief Shumpert is hoping that someone will recognize him and give them the tip they need to solve the case. If you have any information, please contact the South Congaree Police Department at (803) 755-2760 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME SC.
