PICKENS, SC -

A Pickens County man will spend at least 22 years in jail after he was convicted for a violent armed robbery at a apartment complex in Central.

Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins stated Thursday that a jury found Larold Lee Morris, 25, guilty of first-degree burglary, armed robbery, conspiracy and possession of a weapon with an obliterated serial number. Judge Edward Miller sentenced Morris to 25 years in prison, but he will be eligible for parole after serving 22 years.

Wilkins stated that prosecutors presented evidence at the trial that showed Morris and another person entered a Clemson student's off-campus apartment on February 3, 2011, and held the victim at gunpoint. Morris and his accomplice managed to steal a variety of items, but the victim managed to catch one of the suspects calling the other by his nickname.

Wilkins said that Morris and two other men returned to the complex on March 8, 2011. As they were leaving, Police pulled over the vehicle they were in and found two firearms, three ski masks and a box of vinyl gloves.

Testimony presented at trial established that Morris sent a text message to one of his companions before the second incident indicating he wanted to rob one of the apartment's residents. A  stolen X-Box was found at Morris' home when deputies searched it.
