Man makes threats against sheriff

A Bennettsville man was arrested this week after allegedly making threats against Marlboro County Sheriff Charles Lemon while trying to break into his home, the S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED) announced today.
Charles Keith Robinson, 48, was charged with threatening the life, person or family of a public official. This is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, or both, if convicted. 
He was also charged with entering or attempting to enter a house or vessel without breaking in with intent to steal. This is also a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine at the discretion of the court, or both, if convicted.
According to SLED arrest warrants, Robinson went to Lemon’s residence around 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, April 16, where he made several death threats and racial slurs against the sheriff.
In addition, according to the warrants, he attempted to gain entry to Lemon’s residence “by pulling and kicking on the screen door in a violent manner while making said threats.”
Robinson was booked at the Marlboro County Detention Center. The Fourth Circuit Solicitor’s Office will prosecute the case against him.
