Suspect Arrested in Jonesville Armed Robbery

Bond denied on Terry Porter in Dollar General robbery

An arrest has been made in the September 19th armed robbery of Jonesville’s Dollar General Store. An employee there stated she was smoking by her car when an unknown male with a gun approached her and demanded her car keys. She told him they were inside the store, so he followed her inside and demanded her keys and the money from the store. He then left the store. Investigators and the K-9 tracking team were notified and arrived on scene.

Ten days later, officers responded to an address on Spartanburg Highway regarding a stolen moped. The victim stated he was leaving Dollar General on his break when a man standing at the entrance of Dollar General told him he needed a ride. When he turned onto Old Spartanburg Highway, the victim stated the man pulled a gun on him and told him he was taking the moped. The victim described the subject and stated he knew he had been in jail with him before, but he couldn’t remember his name. About an hour later, he called back with the subject’s name. The case was sent to investigations.

On Friday, 35-year-old Terry Porter was arrested and charged with two counts each of possession of a weapon during violent crime and armed robbery with a deadly weapon. Bond was denied.
