      Georgetown County Sheriff's Office looking for carjackers

      The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help finding two men wanted for carjacking a person on Powell Road in the Sampit community last Thursday afternoon.

      According to the victim, two men asked for water for their overheating vehicle. When the victim got out to help, both suspects got out of their own car and the driver pulled out what appeared to be a handgun.

      The victim ran, and one of the carjackers got into his car.

      Both suspects then took off, driving south on Powell Road toward Highway 17.

      The suspects' vehicle is described a Gold, 1990's model Honda with the front bumper barely attached.

      The victim's car is a 2000 White BMW 740iL with license plate number JLW 202.

      Anyone that can identify the suspects or has any information regarding the vehicle theft is urged to call the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office at (843) 546-5101.
