Agner, Jr. has been charged by the Sheriff’s Office with one count each of First Degree Burglary, Armed Robbery Armed with a Deadly Weapon, Grand Larceny, Petit Larceny, Possession of a Weapon during Commission of a Violent Crime and Pointing and Presenting a Firearm at a Person. 

A deputy from the Uniform Patrol Division responded Tuesday to an address on Tollkeepers Place near Seneca and began an investigation in regards to reports of a stolen vehicle and armed robbery.  

The victim told the deputy that a black male, later identified as Agner, Jr., came to his residence twice on Tuesday afternoon inquiring about a female.  

On the second occasion, the subject removed a firearm from his person and made entry inside of the residence armed with the weapon. 

Once inside, the subject stole the victim’s car keys and IPhone and drove away in the victim’s car, a grey in color Dodge Charger, which was valued at approximately $25,000.  

The vehicle was entered as stolen in the National Crimes Information Center database. 

The case was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division.  

Deputies later received word from the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office that the stolen vehicle and IPhone was recovered and that Agner, Jr. was in custody. 

At this time, Agner, Jr. remains in custody at the Oconee County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.  

The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.
