An Augusta teenager was arrested and charged in connection with an armed robbery in the 300 block of Broad Street this morning.
Richmond County jail records say that Uriah Sterling, 17, of the 2300 block of Canberra Court, was charged with armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Investigator William Leisey said that at about 10 a.m. the teenager approached a 22-year-old woman, displayed a firearm and demanded the keys to her vehicle. After he drove away, the woman notified the sheriff's office, and deputies located the vehicle at the River Glen Apartments with the teenager inside. No one was injured.

The fire lane behind McCauley

The fire lane behind McCauley St in Cherry Tree Crossing is even a more likely spot to look.

Too bad the victim actually

Too bad the victim actually WAS a victim and wasn't armed. A well placed .357 on (or through) the CRIMINAL would have ended his criminal career quickly and efficiently.

I am always amazed at how

I am always amazed at how stupid they are. Oh well. One way or another I am sure we will end up feeding, clothing, and housing Mr. Sterling for most of his adult life unless we are lucky enough to have someone put his lights out permanently.
