CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – A third person has been arrested in an Horry County LetGo armed robbery case.

Jarkeem Marshun Lil Dre Lucas, 24, of Conway, was arrested on Monday by members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force at a location near 18th Avenue North and North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, according to Mikayla Moskov, with the Horry County Police Department. “Evidence shows that Lucas conspired with others to rob undercover Horry County Police officers while meeting under the guise of purchasing a dirt bike over the LetGo app.”

Lucas has been charged with attempted armed robbery and driving under a suspension, Moskov said.

Justin Brown, 19, and Marquise Knight, 21, both of Loris, were previously charged in connection to the case.

“HCPD would like to thank our partners on the U.S. Marshals Task Force for their assistance in this case, as well as so many others,” Moskov also said. “We would also like to again recognize the community member who came forward with the information that enabled us to pursue and ultimately solve this case.”
