Man wore ‘stop the violence’ shirt during armed robbery

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Berkeley County deputies say a man responsible for robbing a grocery store in Berkeley County on Jan. 10 wore a “stop the violence” shirt while he committed the crime.

Jonnie Elmore (right) is charged with armed robbery, first degree assault and battery, as well as possession of a weapon during a violent crime. Jobriel Dupree (left), Quadrick Whetstone and Delmontae Geddist are all facing the same charges.

Deputies say the four walked into the Cross Food Mart on Old Hwy 6 and struck a female worker in the back of the head. They then left when the store owner decided to fight back and fired a warning shot, according to sheriff’s office spokeswoman Carli Drayton.

Deputies were able to stop the four teens just down the road, Drayton said. All four were booked into the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.
