On the evening of December 28, 2018, at about 11:01 pm, Mount Pleasant Police Officers responded to a report of a robbery that occurred at a Dollar General store, 1124 North Jefferson Avenue, in Mount Pleasant. During the investigation it was determined an unknown black male, about 5’5 to 5’6 in height, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans with a design on back pockets, and was wearing black and red shoes robbed the store.
