Cayce Police Department breaks up armed robbery in progress at Airport Boulevard convenience store

Cayce, SC 04/07/2022 (Paul Kirby) - At approximately 10:32 a.m. Thursday morning, the Cayce Police Department received a report of an armed robbery in progress at the Marathon Gas Station, located at 1937 Airport Boulevard near I-26. Multiple officers immediately rushed to the scene.

First arriving officers found a female suspect that was still on scene. According to those officers, she had brandished a knife at the store’s clerk. The officers observed her holding the weapon when they arrived. To ensure that the armed woman didn’t hurt the store’s staff or them, they deployed their Tasers striking her. Once she was incapacitated, they safely took her into custody.

The suspect was transported by a Lexington County EMS unit to be treated for a laceration to her head and to have the Taser’s probes removed. According to Ashley Hunter, spokesperson for the Cayce Police Department, once she has been medically cleared, she will be taken into police custody and formally charged. This incident is still under investigation and more information will be released as it becomes available.
