Mount Pleasant Police are looking for a suspect they say robbed a Verizon Store at gunpoint and tied up an employee.
It happened last night at the Verizon Store located at 1009 South Jefferson Avenue.
The victim told police she was able to free herself and dial 911.
She told police the suspect came in to the store and asked for a phone that was kept in the back of the store. When she went to retrieve it, the suspect followed her to the back. She turned around to see the suspect had a gun pointed at her. She advised the suspect took several phones and placed them in garbage bags along with some money that was on scene. The suspect then tied her up and advised her to not move. The suspect then left the store and she was able to free herself enough to call 911.
The suspect’s description is a black male about 5’09” tall and weighing approximately 170 pounds. The suspect had gold front teeth and was wearing blue jeans tucked inside brown work boots, dark colored shirt, blue boonies style hat, and had dreadlocks at shoulder length. The suspect was seen leaving in a silver colored compact car.
