Man charged in Three Fountains bank robbery

October 14, 2018

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A man has been charged in connection to a bank robbery that happened in Three Fountains Friday afternoon.


Leland L. Beatty, 33, has been charged with entering a bank with intent to steal, according to arrest warrants.


“Shortly after the robbery, a photo of the suspect was circulated on social media and we received a tip,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Detectives went to Beatty’s workplace and learned he had left during the time frame of the robbery for a lunch break. When he returned, Beatty reportedly repaid a cash debt he owed a coworker.”


Koon said Beatty was also wearing the same t-shirt, jeans and boots captured in the bank’s surveillance footage during the incident.


Beatty is being held at the Lexington County Detention Center.
