GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – A man was sentenced 10 years to prison after he robbed a victim at knifepoint and stole his vehicle in March 2015 in Georgetown, according to a press release from Horry County Government.

Bruce Elliott Taylor, Jr., 31, of Georgetown pleaded guilty to the armed robbery on Tuesday.

A victim reported that Taylor held a knife to his throat and forced him to drive to an ATM machine in Hemingway to withdraw money, said Richard D. Todd Jr., the Senior Assistant Solicitor.

When the victim and Taylor arrived in Hemingway, the victim saw a police officer in a parking lot, so the victim drove toward the officer. He then jumped out of the vehicle to get help.

Taylor left the scene in the victim’s truck.

The truck was later located in Johnsonville, wrecked and abandoned, according to the press release.

Officers found Taylor in October after responding to an heroin overdose.

The release states that Taylor was taken into custody after he was released from the hospital.
