Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office investigators arrested a Cassatt man for armed robbery after only recently being released from prison.

Investigators arrested Brodrick Oneal Wilson, 29, who lives on Persimmon Drive in Cassatt on Tuesday and charged him with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, attempted armed robbery with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

“Apparently, serving six years in prison for armed robbery was not enough deterrent for Wilson,” Sheriff Jim Matthews said. “Maybe this time, our judicial system will determine that he is a dangerous enough felon to keep him off the streets before he kills someone.”

In a press release, Matthews said Wilson allegedly positioned himself outside the Dollar General in Cassatt on the night of March 3. Wilson allegedly saw a female shopper exit the store and get into her car. He then allegedly followed the woman as she drove several miles to the back of a mobile home park. Wilson reportedly flashed his headlights as he followed the woman. She stopped her vehicle, at which time Wilson allegedly told her she had left a package in the Dollar General store. Wilson then produced a handgun and attempted to rob her, but she reportedly sped away.

Wilson reportedly did not follow this woman any further, but immediately went back to the same Dollar General store. Once again, he allegedly positioned himself in the parking lot and observed a second woman exit the store and drive away. Wilson followed this woman, reportedly flashed his headlights again and she also stopped for him. As before, he produced a handgun and robbed the woman of her pocketbook and its contents. Wilson told this victim to get out of the area and she sped away.

The second victim was able to provide deputies with a very detailed description of Wilson and his vehicle.

On March 4, the second victim was driving in East Camden and saw the white Cadillac that Wilson had been driving the night before when he robbed her at gunpoint. She contacted 911 dispatchers, who alerted law enforcement. A Camden Police Department (CPD) officer spotted the Cadillac and conducted a traffic stop. A records check revealed Wilson was wanted on the KCSO’s outstanding warrant. The Camden officer also charged Wilson for a third offense of driving under suspension, not having proof of insurance and operating an unregistered vehicle. The Camden officer then transported Wilson to the Kershaw County Detention Center.

A KCSO investigator positively identified Wilson as the man who had attempted to rob the first female victim and who did rob the second woman. The investigator also obtained a search warrant for Wilson’s home. During the execution of that search warrant, on Monday, deputies located the pocketbook Wilson allegedly stole from the second victim.

According to the KCSO, Wilson has previously been arrested for possession of crack cocaine, two counts of armed robbery with a deadly weapon, unlawful carrying of a pistol, breaking into motor vehicles, hit and run, second-degree burglary and driving under suspension.

Wilson reportedly admitted he had recently been released from prison after serving six years of a 10-year sentence for two armed robberies that had been pled down to strong armed robbery. He is currently being detained pending a circuit court bond hearing.

A county magistrate set a total of $3,236 cash/surety bonds for the CPD’s traffic violation charges.
