ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - A York County man accused of robbing a business faces additional charges.

Officials arrived on the scene of A to Z Cash and Carry in the 200 block of Willowbrook Avenue around 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon after receiving reports of an armed robbery.

Officers quickly located the suspect trying to get across the train tracks on the other side of Dave Lyle Boulevard, police say. Police arrested Dixon Fletcher Roark and recovered a gun and money that officials say were taken during the robbery.

Roark was charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a crime of violence. Wednesday, police announced Roark faced additional charges of breaking and entering auto and financial transaction card fraud.

Detectives say Roark used a stolen credit card on March 16 at the Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill and charged over $1,200 worth of merchandise.

The gun recovered was reportedly taken during a car break-in on Firetower Road Monday.

Roark has a bond hearing Wednesday afternoon.
