A 17-year-old female was arrested Monday morning in connection with a string of armed robberies last month. According to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, De’Avian Deanne Young is charged with robbing two convenience stores June 19.

Young is also charged with two counts of kidnapping, two counts of possessing a weapon during a violent crime, and one count of criminal conspiracy.

Investigators arrested Young Monday morning at a hotel on Bush River Road. She was transported to the Lexington County Detention Center where she awaits a bond hearing.
