An accused bank robber goes on trial today, in the first of two bank robberies at the same bank.
Tyrone Ellison is charged with robbing the Sun Trust Bank at 8610 Dorchester Road on April 1, 2013.
That’s the case that’s scheduled to begin today. But he’s also accused of going back to rob the same bank, with two accomplices, on July 1, 2013.
In that incident, fleeing robbers crashed into an SUV at S.C. 61 and Campbell Road, sending a Ridgeville couple to the hospital.
The charges in that case are still pending, according to the 1st Circuit Solicitor’s Office.
