Greenville police arrested Sergio Latimer Wednesday morning. Detectives were serving warrants in the Nicholtown community and received a tip that Latimer may be a suspect for the strong armed robbery of a teacher outside Sterling School earlier this week. Detectives found Latimer had outstanding warrants. They went to his house and arrested him on those warrants. After further investigation he was charged with strong armed robbery. 

Greenville Police are looking for the person responsible for a strong armed robbery that occurred Monday morning outside Sterling School. 

Investigators say a teacher was pushed down and her wallet was taken in the school parking lot on John McCarroll Way. It happened between 6:40 and 6:50 a.m. according to the school district.

The teacher suffered minor injuries according to Oby Lyles with the Greenville County School District. Greenville Police were on the scene in minutes because an officer was in the area.

Sterling School doesn’t have a school resource officer according to a GPD spokesman, but there was increased security Monday morning following the robbery.

Lyles says there were other adults on the Sterling School campus at the time of the robbery.

Investigators say the man was wearing a red shirt, black hoodie and jeans.

    Duke Energy says that removing all of the company's coal ash away from North Carolina's rivers and lakes would take decades and cost up to $10 billion, with the state's electricity customers likely footing nearly all the bill. Duke's North Carolina president Paul Newton told state lawmakers Tuesday the company needs flexibility to consider more cost-efficient options that include leaving much of its 100 million tons of toxic ash in place after being covered with giant tarps and soil.
