Police say robbery suspects posed as cops

Apr 27, 2010 12:47:00 AM - thestate.com
Two Richland County men accused of posing as police officers before robbing a man at his house have been arrested by the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Kevin Meeks, 21, and Robert Brown III, 28, are charged with armed robbery.

Sheriff Leon Lott said that on Sunday night, two men went to the man's house on Spears Creek Church Road purportedly seeking another man. The two men - both wearing guns in their waistbands - entered the house, walked through it and then demanded money.

The arrests were made based on the victim's description of the suspects and their getaway car, Lott said.
