    HONEA PATH, South Carolina (WYFF) — A gun sale set up on Facebook Marketplace ended with an armed robbery in a crowded parking lot in South Carolina, according to Honea Path police.

Police said they got a call about 7 p.m. Monday about an armed robbery in the CVS parking lot on East Greer Street.

Police said the victims planned to meet Christopher Dakota Sudberry to sell a gun that was posted on Facebook Marketplace.

They said the victim and Sudberry knew each other from high school.

According to police, Sudberry and co-conspirators took the gun for sale while armed with handguns.

Sudberry is charged with armed robbery, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and criminal conspiracy on one of the suspects.

The Honea Path Police Department posted the following on Facebook about this arrest:

“A violent crime while armed in a very crowded parking lot deserves a high surety bond of at least 50k. The lack of concern for public safety should be the considering factor. Here is one the suspects who made a bad life choice by coming to Honea Path to commit a crime. Now he is famous for robbing someone he knows and could identify him. The investigation continues.”
