Police thank Best Buy GM, Geek Squad for 'integral part' in Sunhouse fatal robberies arrests

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Three men were arrested following three armed robbery sprees, two of which were fatal. The arrests made as the result of a joint effort involving a big screen TV at a Myrtle Beach electronics store. 

Thrill to Kill: Inside the minds of the killers in two deadly robberies

A big screen television was loaned to the Horry County Police Department to assist in the Sunhouse fatal armed robberies investigation.

Detective Ryan Seipt with the Major Crimes Unit of the HCPD thanked Best Buy general manager and the Geek Squad in Myrtle Beach.

After Seipt said he inquired about using the big screen to help in the investigation, “You cleared out employees in their rest area and even had the Geek Squad help set the television up,” he writes to General Manager Stan Kilp.

“Detectives were able to notice things that we previously could not, and it ultimately led to identifying several things that helped solve this case,” Seipt wrote.

McKinley Daniels, 33, of Loris, James Daniels, 27, of Nichols, and Jerome Jenkins, 20, of Loris were each charged with two counts of murder, three counts of armed robbery, three counts of using a firearm during a violent crime, and one count of attempted murder, for the deadly convenience store robberies.
