Three Fort Mill-area business robbed Friday night

FORT MILL -- A gloved bandit made off with money and two cash register drawers in one of three Friday night robberies, according to police reports.

Around 10:30 p.m., a man entered the Fairway BP at 1010 Carolina Place armed with a pistol and wearing a glove. He reached across the counter and grabbed two register tills, according to reports from the York County Sheriff's Office.

The man, who did not touch anything without his glove, wore a black hoodie, white undershirt and blue jeans and a white cloth mask, the report states. He fled in a gray or silver Cadillac, according to the report.

In another robbery around 9:45 p.m., a man entered Cracker Barrel at 295 Carowinds Blvd., where he purchased candy from the store. When the clerk opened the register, the man pulled out a pistol, demanded money and grabbed all of the $20 bills from the register, the report states.

The man fled toward the state line on a bicycle, according to the report.

In still another robbery, a man armed with a silver revolver went behind the counter at Tienda La Sirenita Productos Latinos on U.S. 21 around 6:20 p.m. He took the clerk's purse and $250 from the register. The report states he used his shirt to grab everything he touched before he fled.

The man, whose face was covered, wore a black T-shirt with a white T-shirt underneath and black jeans.

Investigators couldn't be reached Saturday. Reports do not say whether police believe the three robberies were related.

Anyone with information should call York County Sheriff's Office at 628-3059 or CrimeStoppers of York County at 1-877-409-4321.
