Normally, people try to lose pounds at the gym.
But over the weekend, a thief robbed one fitness buff at the Kennerly Road YMCA in Irmo of a gym bag with a .22 revolver in it, credit cards, $100 in cash, a driver’s license, swim trunks and a concealed weapons permit.
The thief or thieves pried open the victim’s locker to get at the gym bag.
Later the thief was caught on video surveillance at the Pitt Stop Exxon gas station at 7409 Broad River Road using the stolen credit cards.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said the thief’s vehicle may be a black, four-door Nissan Maxima, possibly a 1997 or 1998 model.
