Stolen Vehicle Aiken County

Some frightening moments last night when a man stole a vehicle on Jefferson Davis Highway with a young child in the back seat.

The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office says the 2019 black Kia Optima was allegedly taken by 31 year old Raheem Devoe from the Circle K not far from the Georgia/South Carolina line around 8:15 p.m.

Six year old Kashous Gordon, who is not related to Devoe, was alone in the back seat when the car was stolen.

Gordon was found unharmed about two hours later, but authorities are still searching for Devoe.

Investigators say he’s black, 5”11 and weighs 270 pounds.  Devoe was wearing a black hoodie, brown pants and black shoes.  He should be considered armed and dangerous.
