FLORENCE, SC -

Two men and two women have been charged with the armed robbery of a Florence gas station after a SC Highway Patrolman pulled them over in a traffic stop and remembered them from surveillance photos, authorities say.

The four were charged in connection with the August 15, Armed Robbery of the Shell Station/ Convenience Store located at 3001 TV Road, Florence County Deputies said.

According to Investigators, Orlando Rashawn Ross and Allen Dennis are allegedly shown on store surveillance video as they entered the store just after 2 am and demanded money from the store clerk at gunpoint.

The two gunmen left the scene with an undetermined amount of cash and store merchandise.

Investigators further allege that Angela Arlilliam Davis and Tawana Marche Davis were co-defendants who participated in the robbery as well.

Investigators state that soon after the incident a State Highway Patrol Trooper stopped a vehicle with four occupants for a moving violation.

After seeing the Press Release covered in news reports providing a description and the store surveillance images of the male suspects the next day, the Trooper remembered them as having been passengers in the vehicle stopped by him the day before.

This led to the identification of the suspects, who were also linked to an armed robbery in Marion County.

Ross, age 22, of Gemini Drive, Darlington, Angela Arlillian Davis, age 26, of Brooklyn, New York, Tawana Marche Davis, age 39, of Highway 38, Latta, and Keck, age 34, of McKenie Road, Dillon were charged with Armed Robbery While Armed With a Deadly Weapon.

All four suspects are being held at the Marion County Detention Center on charges arising out of the Marion County incident and will transferred to Florence County upon the conclusion of those charges.

"I have always been proud of the interagency cooperation we enjoy here in the Pee Dee, where law enforcement works as one unit serving the public," Sheriff Kenney Boone stated. "This is just another great example of that cooperation. Our thanks go to the South Carolina Highway Patrol Troop 5 and its Trooper for the heads up help in solving this crime."
