A teen is behind bars after being arrested for robbing a Waffle House, the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office said.
Jalon Bradley, a 19-year-old Elgin resident, was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and three counts of kidnapping, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.
The teen was also charged with safe-cracking and criminal conspiracy, prison records show.
Bond was set at a combined $135,000 on six of the charges, but Bradley remains incarcerated at the Kershaw County Detention Center after being denied bail on the armed robbery with a deadly weapon charge, according to prison records.
On March 7, Bradley robbed Waffle House on US 601 in Lugoff, the sheriff’s office said.
No injuries were reported.
Arrest warrants were issued for Bradley on March 14, but he was not taken into custody until March 16 when he was tracked down in Sumter County by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division fugitive apprehension team, according to the release.
Information on how SLED located Bradley and what he was doing at least 40 miles away from his residence in Midlands was not available.
The sheriff’s office named Bradley the “prime suspect” in the Waffle House restaurant robbery, but there was no word on how many other people were involved, their identities or possible charges.
