FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A third man has been arrested in connection with a Florence County murder that occurred along Aline Street back on December 3rd. 

The Florence County Sheriff's Office obtained arrest warrants for 33-year-old Gregory Tywone Canty, of Hemingway. Investigators allege that Canty provided transportation to and from the murder scene for the other two suspects, with the knowledge that they intended to rob the house's occupants.

Nathaniel Nesmith, 51, and Donald Dollard, 57, both of Hemingway, were arrested on December 17 by the Florence County Sheriff's Office. Both men have been charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, and murder in the death of David Jenkins of Timmonsville.

Canty has been charged with armed robbery while armed with a deadly weapon and criminal conspiracy.

According to Investigators, Nesmith and Dollard entered a home along Aline Street near Florence armed with a handgun with the intent to rob the residents. The men restrained the occupants inside the home and fatally shot Jenkins before fleeing the scene. 

An anonymous tip to law enforcement led to the capture of both Nesmith and Collard. They remain in custody at the Florence County Detention Center after bond was denied for both men.

Canty is in custody at the Williamsburg County Detention Center, where he is charged with robbery of a bank in Hemingway. He will be arraigned on his Florence County charges in the future.
