J. Falkner Wilkes, of Greenville, for Appellant.

Mitchell, 382 S.C. 1, 6, 675 S.E.2d 435, 438 (2009) (holding "[a robbery] occurs not only if the perpetrator uses force or intimidation to take possession of the property, but also if force or intimidation is used to retain possession immediately after the taking, or to carry away the property, or to facilitate escape"); State v. Muldrow, 348 S.C. 264, 559 S.E.2d 847 (2002) (holding the State must show evidence corroborating the allegation of being armed, such as the use of a physical representation of a deadly weapon).

AFFIRMED.

Williams, Pieper, and Lockemy, JJ., concur. 


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
