Authorities in Greenville County are asking for the public's assistance in locating 17-year-old Antonio C. Calloway, who they said is wanted in connection with a series of Upstate armed robberies.
In a news release, the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said Calloway was one of three teens -- including 19-year-old Joseph S. Cromer and a 16-year- old who has not been identified -- who are linked to an area robbery spree that occurred between July 25 and Aug. 1.
Deputies said on July 25, the trio broke into a home in the 1600 block of Hudson Road at about 2 a.m., where they waited for the homeowner to come home. Once the homeowner arrived, they robbed him and shot him in the leg, authorities said.
Authorities said the culprits then robbed a man at about 5:50 a.m. in the 2700 block of Anderson Road. The victim in that incident was also shot in the leg, and robbed of his belongings.
At 6:25 a.m. the same day, deputies said the trio robbed the Citgo Corner Mart, located at 1625 Piedmont Hwy. The teens are accused of stealing money from the business, and also robbing the store clerk of her belongings.
Both shooting victims were treated by medical personnel, and are currently recovering from their injuries.
In addition, deputies said Cromer and Calloway are facing charges of armed robbery in connection with an incident that occurred on Aug. 1, where they robbed an individual in the 6000 block of White Horse Road, and stole his vehicle. The vehicle was recovered a short time later.
Cromer was arrested Tuesday night by deputies at the Camelot Inn, located at 20 Woodmede Way in Greenville. He is being held at the Greenville County Detention Center where he was denied bond.
Deputies said the 16-year-old was arrested July 30, and is being held on armed robbery and attempted murder charges.
Calloway and Cromer are both facing five counts each of armed robbery, three counts each of possession of a weapon during a violent crime and criminal conspiracy, as well as two counts of attempted murder, and one charge of burglary.
Calloway is described as black, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 170 pounds. Deputies said his whereabouts are still unknown and that he is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information about the incidents or pertaining to Calloway are asked to call the Greenville County Sheriff's Office at 800-828-1206, or Crime Stoppers at 23-CRIME.
