The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office needs help identifying two suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Murrells Inlet, said agency spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson.

About 3 p.m. Friday, two men entered a home on Huntington Marsh Road through an unlocked door. The victim heard the footsteps and went to check it out when the suspects showed what appeared to be a hand gun and demanded money and jewelry, Cuthbertson said.

The suspects fled and no one was injured.

A bloodhound team searched the area with no results.

While canvassing the neighborhood for more information, deputies learned the suspects approached the front door of a second home on Huntington Marsh Road but left when they realized the owners were home.

Prior to the incident in Georgetown County, Cuthbertson said the Horry County Police Department was notified of a home invasion off U.S. 17 in Garden City involving suspect with the same description.

Deputies believe the suspects are driving a 2013 White Chevrolet Tahoe with a Georgia license plate PHR-2761.

One of the men is described as 5’10” wearing a dark baseball cap. The second was about 6’02” wearing a yellow and green traffic vest. Both were described as being “thin in weight.”

Anyone who may have information about the suspects or the robbery can call 546-5101. Anonymous tips can be sent by texting “GCSOTIP” followed by the message to 274637.

The public is advised not to approach the vehicle or the suspects who may be armed and dangerous and is asked to call 911 if the suspects or the vehicle are spotted.
