Police say bolt cutters were used to steal a welding machine from the Tractor Supply store in Augusta.

In surveillance video of the incident, one of the men can be seen retrieving the bolt cutters from one part of the store then using them to cut through the chain that secured the welder. One of the men then puts the welder in his cart and pushed the cart out of the building's side door, according to Richmond County Sheriff's Investigator Aaron Hannsz.

The two thieves walk to the front register to buy bottled water then left the store - retrieving the welder from the side of the building before they drove away.

Anyone with information on the men can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080.

If they pushed it out a side

If they pushed it out a side door why they didn't just keep on going? Why go back and buy water? Were I a thief, I'd be leaving as fast as I could, thirsty or not!

this was done during business
Unpublished

this was done during business hours??? doesn't tractor supply have ANY employees??? or were they all on lunch break??? breaking into a business after hours to steal is bad enough but when you have the courage (or maybe stupidity) to do it during the day, you certainly have a pair !!!!

Um hey AC that would not be a

Um hey AC that would not be a "break in" if the business was OPEN! It would be shoplifting. Also why in the world didn't any employees notice or hear the thieves in the attempt to take a huge welder! What were they doing? I guess that shows what kind of customer service they have when no employees were around.

No one probably said anything

No one probably said anything for fear of "racial profiling" and getting sued. It's cheaper to let them steal the welder. Obviously, maximum security prison when they are caught because this dude will be using some type of "bolt cutter" to get out of a less secure prison. Is it me...or don't you get tired of going to stores and everything is bolted down...behind locked glass...viewable only? These baffoons drive up our purchase costs and make life so much more difficult. 50 plus years....it is planned and deliberate and they know better. Make them pay dearly!

Businesses are in such trouble that they have cut their staff to bare bones. It's a shoplifter's paradise out there.
