A 26-year-old St. Helena Island man has been charged in connection with an August armed robbery in Beaufort.
Quinton Smalls was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with armed robbery in connection with a two-person armed robbery at Dollar General on Ribaut Road, Beaufort Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Hope Able said.
The other suspect was armed with a handgun at the time of the robbery, according to a department news release. Smalls was identified by the victims and through the department’s investigation, the release said. He was not armed during the robbery, police said.
Smalls is being held at Beaufort County Detention Center. His bond was set at $150,000 on Wednesday morning, according to online Beaufort County court documents.
