MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – Two suspects robbed a Kangaroo Express in Murrells Inlet at gunpoint on Tuesday night, and the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in finding them.

At about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29, two suspects approached the front of the Kangaroo at 658 Wachesaw Road, where the employee was on the telephone, according to a news release from the GCSO. The suspects ordered the victim to enter the business, displayed what appeared to be a handgun, and demanded money. They then fled the store in a southern direction.

A witness at the traffic light saw the suspects exit the store, head to the south end of the business, and enter a vehicle, the release states. The witness followed the suspects’ vehicle to a stop sign at Sunnyside Avenue, where the passenger in the suspect’s car leaned out and fired the apparent handgun. No one was injured in either incident, officials said.

Anyone that can identify the suspects or who has any information on the robbery is asked to call GCSO at (843) 546-5101, or Text-A-Tip to 274637 with the word “GCSOTIP” followed by your message.
