LITTLE MOUNTAIN — A man being sought in connection with an armed robbery in April has been arrested but the search remains for a second man, the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office said late Thursday.
Lorenzo Cedell Jones, 27, of 2329 Cottage Ave. in Newberry, was taken into custody at a home on Booker Street in Newberry without incident, according to the NCSO.
Investigators had received information indicating Jones was in the area.
According to the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded April 30 to an armed robbery call on Holy Trinity Church Road in Little Mountain.
Deputies were told that two black males forced their way into the home, held the victims on the floor and robbed them. The victims said the men stole several items, including cell phones.
“It is the coming together of the entire community that ensures that incidents like this are few and far between,” Sheriff Lee Foster said. “We work to eradicate violence in the community at every level. It takes an entire community to make this happen.”
