      The Georgetown Police Department arrested Calvin Miles on Friday, who was wanted out of Myrtle Beach.

      Miles was found in the Georgetown Housing Authority, according to Georgetown police.

      Miles was wanted in connection to an armed robbery on April 22 at the Ocean Plaza Motel.

      Three victims told officers that someone knocked on their door at 5 a.m. and said they were Myrtle Beach police.

      When the victims opened their door, they said four men forced their way into the room.

      One victim was pistol whipped, according to Captain David Knipes with Myrtle Beach police.

      The men forced the victims to lie on the bed with their faces down, and another victim was taken into a bathroom and fondled, according to the police report.

      Phones, credit cards, purses, wallets, hair straighteners, jewelery, $220 in cash, alcohol and a GPS unit were stolen from the rooms.

      One of the men also took a victim next door to the Polynesian Resort at knife point and forced her to withdraw $200 from an ATM in the lobby.

      Once the men left the room, the victims went to another room on the property to borrow a phone and called police.

      Emoptep Muhammed was arrested on April 24 in connection to this armed robbery as well.

      Police are still looking for Dominique Lowell Grant, who is wanted for his involvement in the robbery.

      Police believe him and other people possibly involved are traveling in a white Crown Victoria, with SC tags of HWC565, with an orange interior.

      Grant, 23, is about 5'8", 175 lbs, with short black hair.

      The men are possibly with Shemika Bryant, who is also wanted for Accessory after the Fact.

      All are armed and dangerous.

      Police found several items that were stolen in another room on the same property.

      Miles was charged with several counts of Kidnapping, Armed Robbery, and Burglary.
