Gold store armed robbery lands suspect behind bars

Florence, SC -

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Investigators in Florence have arrested a 21-year-old Florence man accused of robbing a Florence drive-through at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon.

Maj. Carlos Raines, spokesman for the Florence Police Department, said Shallah Allah Marshall, 21, of Florence, has been charged for his alleged role in the armed robbery of We Buy Gold.

Florence Police were called to the store, located at 400 Pamplico Hwy., at 1:34 p.m. Wednesday after a new store employee reported he had been robbed at gunpoint by two black males.

The employee told investigators the two men approached the store's drive-through window and pulled out a semi-automatic handgun after asking to purchase previously owned jewelry. Officials said the store employee handed over $640 in cash, the company checkbook and personal cell phone to meet the demands of the suspects.

The employee told police the suspects ordered the man to the floor and threatened to shoot him if he moved. The suspects, according to investigators, left the store property in a southeast direction on Pamplico Highway.

Following his arrest on Thursday, Marshall was also charged with two counts of attempted armed robbery and an additional count of armed robbery.

Raines said Marshall has been connected to the Aug. 22 armed robbery of a Kangaroo gas station on Second Loop Road.

Marshall also faces charges from a recent armed robbery at a Courtyard Marriott hotel in Florence and an attempted armed robbery at a second Kangaroo gas station, located on Cashua Drive.
