The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office has filed warrants against two Rock Hill men for two robberies at an Indian Land convenience store last week. 

Dyquane Billings, 22, and Trevante Bryant, 16, both of the same Rock Hill address, are accused of robbing QuikTrip, 9565 Charlotte Highway, on Tuesday, May 27 and Friday, May 30.

According to a press release issued Thursday, June 5, the suspects stole money and lottery tickets during the first robbery and used a BB gun to steal money from a clerk in the second robbery.

No further information was provided about the alleged crimes except that both men are each facing one charge each of armed robbery and strong-arm robbery. Bryant is being charged as an adult with the armed robbery, the release said.

The release said the men were arrested this week in York County following a similar string of robberies there. 

The suspects will be brought here to face charges following their release from York County.

Detectives from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, York County Sheriff’s Office, Rock Hill Police Department and Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department cooperated in the investigation.
