The Dollar General Store on Edgemoor Road in Claxton was robbed at knifepoint on Saturday, October 24, shortly before 10 p.m., authorities said.

Sheriff’s K-9s were called to the scene and tracked the suspect through the Greenview Village housing complex into Greenview Apartments on Old Edgemoor Road to a vacant apartment.
