COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating a robbery involving two suspects which occurred on Nov. 11.
Deputies say they responded to a call from a clerk at Instant Cash Loans at 7364 Two Notch Road a few blocks away from Jackson Creek Elementary School.
