Suspect arrested in James Island bank robbery

Yohanan Hezekiah Corder

A 29-year-old Charleston man who was out of jail on drug charges has been arrested in connection with the April 11 robbery of TD Bank on James Island.

Yohanan Hezekiah Corder of Lolandra Avenue has been charged with entering a financial institution with the intent to steal, according to Charles Francis, spokesman for Charleston police.

The robbery occurred about 12:45 p.m. when a man entered the bank at 504 Folly Road and demanded money from a teller.

Surveillance video from the bank helped detectives identify the suspect by the type of clothing he wore and the vehicle he drove, Francis said.

Corder was arrested in March on cocaine and heroin charges and released on bail, according to court and jail records. He’s being held in the Cannon Detention Center.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if he’s involved in any additional bank robberies.
