Departing guest ransacked Augusta motel room, police told

The manager of an Augusta motel told officers that a man trashed his room after she told him to leave.

According to a Richmond County sheriff's report, the manager said that the man had been staying at a room at the Motel 6 at 201 Boy Scout Road since Jan. 5. The manager said that she told the man he had to leave because the motel's policy did not allow customers to stay for longer than 30 days. The man gathered his belongings and left on Tuesday.

When the manager inspected the room later in the day, she found that it had been ransacked. The headboards and the bed frames of two double beds, a microfridge, one light fixture and a 19-inch television had all been broken, adding up to about $810 worth of damage, the report states.
