ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. - April 2, 2013 Update

A third robbery in the past few days has been reported in Pendleton and sheriff's deputies are treating at least two of the crimes as related.

The Dollar General store on South Mechanic Street was robbed around 9:40 p.m. Tuesday. 

The Anderson County Sheriff's Office says a man wearing a wig and a white mask came into the store armed with a knife and demanded money from a cashier.

He then left the store on foot. ACSO deputies and dogs searched the area, but found no sign of the suspected robber.

We're told the description of the suspect from Tuesday night matched a man who reportedly robbed a Bojangles restaurant earlier this week.

ACSO investigators are treating those two crimes as related.
