Irmo Police arrest armed robbery suspect

Irmo, SC - On January 29, 2019, Irmo officers were called to the WalMart located at 1180 Dutch Fork Road in Ballentine after a subject shoplifted over 10 scientific calculators from the store. After the subject was approached by a WalMart employee, the subject brandished a knife at the employee and fled. Officers were able to identify the subject as Steven Wayne Harmon, 26, and obtain arrest warrants for him.

Irmo investigators found that Harmon was trying to sell the stolen calculators on social media. Undercover officers and agents with the Midlands Gang Task Force were able to get Harmon to meet up to purchase the calculators. Harmon showed up with one of the calculators and his knife. Harmon was arrested without incident and taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center for booking.

This is a reminder to be careful when purchasing items from individuals on social media. It is always a good idea to make the exchanges in a safe public place if you do not know the individual. The Irmo Police Department allows for exchanges to take place at the police station where there is an area that is video monitored and officers are typically on site in case someone feels unsafe about making the exchange.
