The Greenville County Sheriff's Office is investigating a pair of armed robberies that occurred in different parts of the county Friday morning.
At 8:34 a.m. Friday, deputies responded to 47 Fisherman Lane, near Pelham Road and Interstate 85 in the Greer area, where a man said he'd been approached by a suspect in the parking lot across from the Hampton Inn. The suspect, a white male standing roughly 6 foot 3, reportedly brandished a handgun and stole the victim's 2004 dark green Toyota Tundra truck. He was wearing a white shirt and had a bandana over his face.
Earlier Friday morning, another armed robbery was reported on Augusta Road. At 2 a.m., a victim told deputies he was in the parking lot of the Dollar Tree at 6201 Augusta Road changing a flat tire when a gray Nissan four-door vehicle pulled in. Three suspects reportedly got out of the vehicle, one of them, armed with a handgun, robbed the victim of his cash.
All three suspects were described as young black males, roughly 18-years-old, standing at 5 foot 9, with skinny builds.
