Sheriff's office seeking public's help in finding burglars

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is asking for assistance identifying several men who burglarized four businesses.


Shortly after midnight Jan. 24, deputies were called to burglaries at Zack’s Wings and Things, 3355 Deans Bridge Road, and Raceway, 2161 Gordon Highway.

In both cases, an object was thrown through a window and a stolen 2009 Honda Accord was seen on surveillance video leaving the location.

On Feb. 2 around 1 a.m., deputies were called to B.P., 2745 Wheeler Road, and Ja Ho Mart, 1770 Kissingbower Road, where two similar suspects had used a crowbar to pry open the door.

In each case, one of the two burglars was wearing a blue striped shirt. A third man was also observed in the burglary of Raceway.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 82-1080.
