McCray was Arrested Wednesday of SLED agents at a Myrtle Beach hotel, according to Conway spokesman Taylor Newell.

McCray was wanted in connection with several armed robberies in Conway, including two at the Carolina Payday Loans on Church Street.

Police said on November 15 that McCray tried to rob Upfront loans on Church Street.

“Mr. McCray took out an upfront loan. He had a gun. He asked for money. They were only open about a week so they had no money to give him,” said Detective Josh Scott.

Scott said McCray then ran to Carolina Payday Loans, showed the same gun, and asked for money.

“You’re giving him an undisclosed amount of money on that occasion,” said Scott.

Less than two weeks later, police said McCray returned to Carolina Payday Loans for more money, but left evidence to help police.
