Conway police name person of interest in bank robbery that left 2 employees dead | News

Authorities in Conway have identified a person of interest in a bank robbery Monday that resulted in the deaths of two employees. 

Conway police said Tuesday they are looking to speak with Brandon Michael Council, 32, of Wilson, N.C., who is wanted for a separate bank robbery in North Carolina on Aug. 10. 

“We have reason to believe he may have been in the Conway area and are following up leads at this time,” police said in a Facebook post. 

Officers responded about 1:15 p.m. Monday to an alarm at CresCrom Bank on 16th Avenue. Two employees inside died from injuries suffered during the robbery. Authorities have not said how the victims were killed. 

The suspect is described as a black male with long braided hair. He left in a car belonging to one of the victims, a white four-door Chrysler 200 with the South Carolina license plate IZM457. The vehicle has tinted windows and a sticker on the glass that says “River Life.”

On Tuesday, the police department released photos of Council with long and short hair, saying he could change his hairstyle. 

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call law enforcement and not approach Council, as he is considered armed and dangerous. Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry may be reached at 1-888-274-6372.
