PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Pickens County deputies said a Travelers Rest man who had been wanted on multiple charges in three Upstate counties was arrested Thursday morning.

Deputies said 19-year-old Ryan Adam Carr was arrested along with Eliyah Kiana Rogers at a home on McCoy Street.

Deputies said Carr and Rogers are both charged with armed robbery and receiving stolen goods in Pickens County.

In Oconee County, Carr was charged with one charge of possession of a stolen vehicle and five charges of financial transaction card fraud. Deputies said Carr was accused of being in possession of a 2013 Mazda CX-9, which was reported stolen on February 17. Carr also used the car theft victim's credit card for five separate transactions at the Walmart in Seneca, deputies said. All five transactions occurred on February 18. The sheriff's office said the fraudulent credit card charges amounted to $1,687.88. 

Pickens County deputies said an SUV stolen from Greenville County was used in an armed robbery on February 17. During that incident, deputies said two people got out of the vehicle and robbed a man of his personal belongings after one suspect threatened to shoot him if he did not comply.

"The identities of the suspects were confirmed through the independent investigations conducted by authorities in all three counties and two of the three suspects have now been arrested this morning and are currently detained in the Pickens County Detention Center," said Chief Deputy Creed Hashe.

Hashe said the third suspect in the Pickens County robbery is still at large and that suspect's name is not being released at this time.
