Deroy King, Jr., a convicted felon, is wanted for his alleged
involvement in the armed robberies of a bank in Simpsonville,
South Carolina. In December of 1989 and March of 1990, King allegedly
entered the same bank, produced a handgun and a duffel bag, and
demanded money. After obtaining money, King allegedly ordered
the bank employees to get into a closet. Following the second
robbery, responding officers managed to approach King's vehicle
to block his escape, but King was able to elude capture by firing
his weapon in the direction of the officers.
On March 13, 1990, a federal arrest warrant was issued by the United
States District Court, District of South Carolina, after King was charged
with armed bank robbery.
King may seek medical treatment at various Veteran Administration hospitals. He has ties to Greensboro, Charlotte, Lexington, Winston-Salem, and Arcadia, North Carolina.
