Officers Arrest 2 Armed Robbery Suspects
Deputies say the two men robbed a house near Gaston on June 25.
Officers arrested a Lexington man and an Irmo man this week in connection with the burglary and armed robbery of a home near Gaston.
Corey Lamar Stanton, 30, and Henry Patrick Vesey, Jr., 38, are charged with first-degree burglary and armed robbery, according to the Lexington County Sheriff's Department.
An Irmo police office detained Stanton Monday near his girlfriend's house. Another Irmo officer detained Vesey Tuesday.
Lexington County deputies booked Stanton and Vesey at the Lexington County Detention Center. They are both awaiting bond hearings.
The two men allegedly entered a home on Sharon Church Road around 1 p.m. June 25 and demanded money, jewelry and drugs, according to a Lexington County Sheriff's Department incident report.
One of the men pointed a gun at the two victims, while the other man took a blanket from the sofa and collected the goods, according to the report.
The victim told deputies the men left the house and walked toward Sharon Church Road and then toward WE Jeffcoat Road, according to the report. A witness told deputies she saw two men get into a dark four-door car with chrome around the windows. The vehicle drove away on Sharon Church Road.
