Bank robber arrested

  • Tuesday, March 26, 2013


A 23-year-old Summerville man accused of robbing a bank last Thursday is still in jail.
Police say Charles E. Johnson III walked into the First Federal bank located on North Main Street in Summerville at about 3:45 p.m. March 21 and demanded cash. He did not show a weapon, however, he did say he had a bomb, according to Capt. Jon Rogers of the Summerville Policed Department.
The suspect then fled the scene with an undetermined amount of cash.
No one was injured in the incident, Rogers said.
The next day a Goose Creek Police Officer saw Johnson in the Goose Creek Wal Mart, recognized him and confirmed his identity through BOLO information. Johnson was then arrested without incident and transported to the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.
“Due to incredible police work by the Goose Creek Police Department, Summerville Police arrested Charles E. Johnson III of unincorporated Summerville,” Rogers said Saturday.
A Berkeley County magistrate set Johnson’s bond at $90,000. Johnson remains in Hill-Finklea Detention Center, charged with Entering a Financial Institution with Intent to Steal.
