Man arrested by Lexington PD for attempted armed robbery

Lexington, SC – Chief Terrence Green announced Friday the arrest of Jesse Wayne Richards, Age 31 of Lexington, South Carolina, who fled the state after his involvement in an attempted armed robbery that took place on July 10, 2018 in the Town of Lexington.

On the afternoon of the incident, Jesse Richards drove a co-defendant, Cooper Cole, age 17 of Lexington, South Carolina, to the Towne Centre II shopping complex, which is located on the 900 block of North Lake Drive in Lexington, South Carolina.

When seen by a judge at Lexington County Bond Court, Jesse Richards was given a bond of $30,000.
