MULLINS, SC (WMBF) – Mullins Police arrested a man soon after he robbed the Mullins post office at 320 N. Main St on Friday.

Lt. Joe Graham says James Winstead was arrested for an armed robbery with a knife and he took an undisclosed amount of money.

Lt. Graham says officers caught Winstead within 40 yards of the post office.

Winstead is charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

Lt. Graham says more charges may follow because the robbery occurred in a federal building.

Winstead is being held at the Mullins County Detention Center.
