Sheriff’s investigators release photo of armed robber
Batesburg-Leesville, SC (Paul Kirby) – The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department has now released photographs of the man they believed robbed a convenience store at gunpoint on Augusta Highway near Batesburg-Leesville early Saturday.

In the store’s video, it shows him wearing a dust mask across his face. He has a small handgun in his right hand and a hooded black jacket on. It has a light blue design across the front, and he appears as if he has a white, long-sleeve t-shirt on.
