MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — A 30-year-old man has been arrested after police said that he robbed a parking garage employee at gunpoint.

Jarmichael Marquise Lynn was arrested on Thursday and charged with attempted armed robbery and the possession of a weapon during a violent crime. He did not receive bail.

On Wednesday, an employee of Boulevard Parking told police that he had a casual conversation with Lynn and allowed him to use his cell phone, according to arrest warrants. Lynn then used the phone, and then showed an AR-15-style rifle and demanded money. The victim gave him $300 from the cash drawer, and Lynn left.

Police used camera footage to locate Lynn’s vehicle at 2610 N. Ocean Blvd., stopped the vehicle and arrested him, according to arrest warrants. They also discovered he was staying in a room at that location. A search warrant later found the rifle inside the room. Police said the number Lynn called from the victim’s phone also belonged to him.
