      WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - Lexington County Sheriff's Department detectives are hoping the community can help them locate two suspects wanted on arrest warrants in connection with a robbery that occurred last Friday near West Columbia.

      Arrest warrants allege that Joseph Eadon, 32, Pamela Shae Norris, 29, and Brian "Bam" Austin, 21, assaulted and then robbed a 20-year-old man at the Executive Inn in West Columbia around 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 27.

      "Eadon, Norris and Robinson hit the 20-year-old man with their fists and a belt and placed their hands around his neck, causing the man to lose consciousness while he was being choked," said Lexington County Shriff James R. Metts. "After they assaulted the 20-year-old man, Eadon, Norris and Robinson stole $669 in cash, one LG cellular telephone and one Dell M5030 laptop computer from the motel room."

      According to Metts, Eadon is 6-foot-1, weighs 195 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes. Norris is 5-foot-5, weighs 130 pounds, and has strawberry blond hair and blue eyes. Robinson is 6-foot-2, weighs 220 pounds, and has brown hair and green eyes.

      The Lexington County Sheriff's Department fugitive investigators arrested Norris late Tuesday afternoon.

      Metts asked anyone with information concerning the whereabouts of Eadon or Robinson to call the Lexington County Sheriffâ??s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
