Sumter police officers arrested a woman Sunday morning in connection to two convenience store robberies in the western part of the city last week.
Quanisha Latrell Burgess, 34, last known address of Nazarene Church Road, is charged with armed robbery and attempted armed robbery and is being held in Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center, according to a news release from Sumter Police Department. Her bond has been set at $25,000.
Between 9 and 9:45 p.m. on Oct. 14, Burgess allegedly entered the Young’s at 1970 Camden Highway and the Circle K at 2295 Broad St., went to the restroom area and later approached the clerks telling them she was armed and intended to rob the store.
No money or goods were taken during the first incident at Young's, but an undisclosed amount of cash was taken from Circle K. Burgess was reportedly seen getting into a parked vehicle with two men and leaving the area after leaving the store.
The investigation is ongoing.
