Troy David Williams

Charleston police officers this morning arrested a 46-year-old man on charges that he robbed a Dollar General store on James Island in November.

Troy David Williams of Johns Island turned himself in at Charleston Police Department headquarters about 10:30 a.m. today, according to police spokesman Charles Francis. He faces charges of armed robbery and possession of a firearm in commission of a violent crime.

Williams, who is on parole for a third shoplifting offense, was armed with a handgun when he robbed the store at 1752 River Road on Nov. 24, the police said.

The same store has been targeted by robbers four times over the past three months, but investigators wouldn’t say whether Williams was connected to any of the other incidents.
