      Suspect wanted in Zaxby's armed robbery

      Another Zaxby's restaurant in the Midlands has been robbed at gunpoint according to officials with the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

      BLYTHEWOOD, SC (WACH) - Another Zaxby's restaurant in the Midlands has been robbed at gunpoint according to officials with the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

      The latest robbery, which occurred Wednesday night around 8 p.m. at the Zaxby's on Sams Crossing Drive near Killian Road in Blythewood, is the third armed robbery at a Zaxby's restaurant in the Midlands since late September.

      Sheriff Leon Lott says deputies responded to an armed robbery call Wednesday and were told that a man entered the business and pretended to place an order. When the victim opened the register, the suspect showed his gun, reached in the drawer and stole money.

      Lott says the suspect could possibly be connected to "similar commercial robberies."

      The three robberies were all captured on surveillance video.

      Anyone with information on this incident should contact CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
