(Aiken County, SC) – A pair of ski-masked and pistol-waving bandits are being sought by police in two states after overnight armed robberies in Aiken County, SC.
The holdups started shortly after 1 a.m. ET today, Wed., Nov. 22, 2017 when a holdup was reported in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter at 1201 Knox Ave. in North Augusta, SC.
That was followed 40 minutes later with a robbery report from Circle K #2751 at 1925 Edgefield Hwy off Interstate-20 near Aiken, SC.
