Anderson, SC—It took an Anderson County jury less than 10 minutes to convict Darrell Blackwell of the Armed Robbery that occurred at the Shop Rite store at 714 Sayre Street on January 9, 2016. The entire incident was captured on the store’s video surveillance and clearly showed Blackwell armed with both a knife and what appeared to be a gun when he entered and then robbed the store of money, cigarettes, and other various items. Two clerks were working at the time, but fortunately, no one was physically harmed. The defendant was apprehended several days later after an investigation by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.
“The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office did a great job tracking this armed robber down and we appreciate all their hard work.” Solicitor David Wagner.
