Update January 4: The Jasper County Sun writes that Clemons and another unidentified man allegedly involved in an attempted robbery of the Beaufort Kangaroo gas station are also wanted in possible connection with the robbery of a Bobops gas station in Ridgeland.

First reporting: 18-year-old Christopher Clemons has been arrested on charges alleging that he robbed the Kangaroo Express gas station at the foot of the Broad River Bridge on Christmas Eve — only it turns out Clemons didn't have a gun and two clerks tackled him and held him there until police arrived.

WTOC 11 has the security camera footage; watch it over here.

Another suspect is still wanted.
