Thanks for reading GwdToday - Everyday!

An armed robbery suspect was arrested late Wednesday night after he was reportedly caught speeding along Sweetwater Road.

Demarcus Lamond Spearman, 25, of 302 Coker Rd., is charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime in connection with the April armed robbery of a man at the SAI Food Store near the end of Emerald Rd.

According to Greenwood Police Department reports, an officer was running stationary radar on Sweetwater Road when the officer clocked Spearman’s car travelling at 63 mph in a 35 mph zone. The officer initiated a traffic stop on Spearman and checked his driver’s license. The license came back clear, but the officer was notified that Spearman had two active arrest warrants.

According to investigators Spearman is one of several suspects involved in the April 28 armed robbery of a man at the SAI Food Store, located at 623 Bypass 25 N.E. Spearman and his accomplices are believed to have robbed a man at gunpoint, investigators said.

According to reports, a man was pumping gas at the convenience store when Spearman and others pulled in directly behind the victim. A man the victim identified as “Mook” exited the vehicle with a silver .38 caliber handgun and pointed the handgun directly at him. The victim ran toward a group of people at the Dazzle Car Wash and told them what was going on. “Mook” then got in his car and left.

According to reports, police recovered a .38 caliber handgun from Spearman’s vehicle during the traffic stop. The handgun checked out clear and was placed into evidence.
