The charges stem from an armed robbery that happened Monday near an apartment complex at 2361 Eden Terrace in Rock Hill. Two men armed with pistols took $50 and a debit card from a 32-year-old man, according to police reports. The men fled and were seen in a Crown Victoria, which authorities stopped on Anderson Road. Police discovered a gun in the trunk and two others inside the car, the report states.
A judge set bond at $38,000 for Sanders and $40,000 for Price. Bond was set at $30,000 for Chisholm and $35,00O for Crank and Bland. The men remained in custody Tuesday at the York County Detention Center.
