SEABROOK, SC (April 5/9:15 AM) – The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery that took place in the area of Creekmore Lane yesterday afternoon.

At approximately 1:00 pm yesterday, Sheriff’s deputies responded to the intersection of Delaney Cir and Creekmore Ln in reference to an armed robbery that had occurred minutes before outside a home at 4 Creekmore Ln. Upon arrival, deputies met two victims: a 66-year old man and his 25-year old son.

The victims advised that they had come to the area, traveling from North Carolina, to meet with a subject concerning the possible purchase of an advertised Honda motorcycle. The subject, whom they knew only as “T-Rock” initially instructed them to go to 271 Seabrook Rd. After arriving and finding no one there, they were again contacted and given directions to Delaney Cir and Creekmore Ln.

As the victims approached Creekmore Ln, they observed a black male who motioned them to follow him further down the road. The 25-year old victim got out of the vehicle to follow the subject, leaving his father waiting at the vehicle.

The son followed the subject behind an abandoned trailer, where another suspect was waiting, armed with a handgun. He was held at gunpoint, and ordered to empty his pockets. When the suspects discovered he had no money, the armed suspect left, returning with the father. Both victims were then held at gunpoint behind the trailer. The suspects removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the father’s wallet, then fled the scene on foot, leaving both victims unharmed.

During the course of the ongoing investigation, deputies have identified the armed suspect as 26-year old Brandon Adron Singleton. Warrants for Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Violent Crime have been obtained, and investigators are currently searching for Singleton. Singleton’s last known address is 8 Bear Swamp Ln in Seabrook. He is described as a black male, approximately 5’07”, 135 lbs, with dreadlocks.

The suspect known as “T-Rock” has yet to be positively identified. Investigators are continuing to follow up on leads regarding this suspect’s identity. He is described as a black male, between 20-30 years of age, approximately 6’00”, 150 lbs. with a shaved head.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to contact either Investigator Sgt. J. Fraser at 842-470-3267 or the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
