Sheriff: DNA left at crime scene helps investigators ID suspect | Crime
The Richland County Sheriff Department is requesting the community’s assistance in locating a man wanted for robbery.
Deputies say DNA evidence helped investigators identify 18-year-old Cedric Wiley Robinson as the suspect involved in the robbery.
The report said just after 1:00 p.m. on Friday, November 30, Robinson walked in to TD Bank located at 7389 Garners Ferry Road and stole money.
Deputies say Robinson walked up to the employee demanding money to be placed into a bag he was holding.
Robinson then fled the business in a red Envoy, the report stated.
Deputies say they recovered the abandoned Envoy, with the stolen money still inside the vehicle, a short distance from the bank on Greenlawn Road.
According to sheriff’s deputies, it was later determined by the forensics lab that DNA evidence, left behind by Robinson positively identified him as the suspect involved in the robbery.
If you know where Robinson is hiding, you are urged to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
