Third suspect arrested in bank robbery

  • Tuesday, January 14, 2014


Hemingway Police Department has charged a third suspect in connection to a December 17, bank robbery. According to reports, Hemingway Police Chief Bryan Todd said on December 31, Gregory Tywone Canty, 33, of Hemingway, turned himself into police. Chief Todd said police had been in communication with the suspect prior to his surrender. Canty is suspected of taking part in the bank robbery located on East Broad Street in Hemingway. On the morning after the robbery, the Florence County Sheriff's Office arrested Nathanial Nesmith, 51, and Donald Ray Dollard, 57, both of Hemingway, and charged them with armed robbery while armed with a deadly weapon and murder, among other charges in connection to the death of David Lionel Jenkins in Florence. Hemingway Police would later file armed robbery charges against Nesmith and Dollard. The three men are charged with entering the bank and making gestures indicating they were armed. Though Todd said it is believed the men did not have weapons on them, their actions warranted the armed robbery charges.
