A Crime Stoppers tip led Charleston County sheriff's deputies to one of two men accused of holding up a Subway restaurant at gunpoint last year.
Vince Roshied Bowens, 28, of Harper Street in North Charleston, is charged with armed robbery, kidnapping and unlawful carrying of a firearm, jail records show.
He was arrested Friday morning in connection with an armed robbery that took place Nov. 1 at a Johns Island Subway on Savannah Highway, authorities said.
According to an arrest warrant, Bowens is one of two men who stormed into the restaurant around 9 p.m. The men stole about $350 in cash and ran from the scene, according to an incident report.
One of the men wore an orange Halloween mask and was armed with a shotgun, sheriff's deputies said. Investigators later found the mask in a wooded area near the restaurant.
A tipster reported to deputies that Bowens was one of the men involved in the armed robbery.
DNA evidence retrieved from the mask matched Bowens, authorities said.
Bowens is being held at the jail pending a bond hearing.
