MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – A man wanted for robbing the Conway National Bank Jan. 23 struck again Saturday, robbing the TD Bank in Murrells Inlet.

Detectives with the Horry County Police Department said Brian Wilson Humphreys Jr., 35, of Myrtle Beach is still at large after robbing a second bank, located at 3205 South Highway 17, in less than a week’s time.

Officers on scene said they responded to the bank when a hold-up alarm was triggered at 12:21 p.m.

Humphreys handed the teller a note that said it was a robbery and he was armed. He left the scene in a champagne Ford F-250 pick-up truck, with the South Carolina license plate number ITS959. The truck was reported stolen.

As he fled, a dye pack detonated inside the money bag and moments later, police received a call about money with red dye found at the intersection of Glenns Bay Road and Highway 17 Bypass.

After collecting that money, police received a call about a large amount of money covered in red dye in a trash bag at the Quick Shop convenience store at 1401 Coventry Road.

The money cannot be processed yet, so police cannot say how much was recovered.

No injuries were reported.

Humphreys is described as standing 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds and having tattoos on his neck. He is currently at large, is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.

Anyone who comes into contact with red-stained currency or information on Humphreys’ whereabouts should contact local law enforcement immediately.
