HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County police announced via Twitter Thursday morning accused bank robber Brian Wilson Humphreys Jr. was located and taken into custody by officers investigating a suspicious vehicle on Highway 90.
Humphreys was wanted for robbing the Conway National Bank Jan. 23 when he struck again Jan. 28, robbing the TD Bank in Murrells Inlet.
Officers on scene said they responded to the bank when a hold-up alarm was triggered at 12:21 p.m.
