NC teens charged in Simpsonville gun store robbery


SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — Two Charlotte teens have been charged for their roles in a smash-and-grab at an Upstate gun store.

Sahier Lavon Richardson and Juran Maghi Witherspoon, both 18, were indicted Thursday for their roles in the break-in and theft of firearms from the Gun Shop in Simpsonville, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Beth Drake.

A federal grand jury indicted the teens for stealing firearms from the store on October 13, 2016.

Richardson and Witherspoon have been in jail without bond since their arrest on federal warrants in early November for the offense.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) with the assistance of the Simpsonville Police Department, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department and the Lincoln County (North Carolina) Sheriff’s Department investigated the incident.

The case has been assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Lance Crick of the Greenville office for prosecution.
