  • Follow Crime & courts

Fingerprints linked a Hephzibah man to 11 automobile break-ins on June 23 in Forest Estates off Wrightsboro Road, according to Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Aaron Hannsz.

Reginald Dion Stone, 18, of the 4000 block of Ruffin Road, is charged with 11 counts of entering an auto and one count of financial card transaction fraud.

In August, credit cards removed from the vehicles were linked to Stone and two others, Michael Loron Taylor and Jessica Dayetta Smith, Hannsz said.

Taylor, 19, of the 2300 block of Richwood Drive, is charged with theft by receiving and four counts of financial card transaction fraud. Smith, 18, of the 2100 block of Faircrest Drive, is charged with two counts of financial card transaction fraud.

Chandra Williams, 18, is also charged with theft by receiving in relation to the case, Hannsz said.

Authorities are also searching for Stedmon Carsley Sapp, 20, of the 3100 block of Skinner Mill Road, for questioning in the case. Sapp has four outstanding warrants unrelated to the case.

 

More arrests are expected, Hannsz said.

More criminals off the

More criminals off the streets, but when are we going to run out of land to build the jails? If incarceration were the solution to the problem then crime statistics would go down, wouldn't they? This is just a side-effect of the "dumbing-down" of Americans. Take more away from the education systems, graduate less college eligible students (white or black or brown) and therefore, take away the hope of our young people. When their hope is gone...what do they have to lose by committing crimes? They think of incarceration as 3 hots and a cot. No one should be considered trash. We are all created by the same "God".

How about quit requireing a

How about quit requireing a college degree to get a low paying job in the first place. You use to be able to survive even if you quit school. One of the richest men in Augusta quit school.

I see we have a bleeding

I see we have a bleeding heart on the board. You and your ilk are partly to blame for most of this. And these people are trash, I have no symapthy for a lowlife thief. They may have had no other choice because of the way they were raised, but you bleeding hearts keep denying the problems and weakening the punishment, more crime is what you get. Sickening.

I must be doing something

I must be doing something wrong.

Just who ARE all these people that leave credit cards in their car? I've never done that, but I guess a lot of people do. They leave credit cards and cash in a car- and then wonder why their cars get broken into.

Gemini, it's interesting how you think that the people involved don't have high school diplomas or are not intelligent enough to go to college. How do you arrive at that conclusion?

First of all he is not old

First of all he is not old enough to have graduated from college. Education helps but that is not the key that is missing. WORK ETHICS are what is missing. Most of these people do not know how to show up for work on time, in appropriate attire and grasp all the knowledge they can from even a low paying job. If you work hard and try to continue bettering yourself you can accomplish a great deal no matter what your education or upbringing is.

I agree OhWell. Problem is

I agree OhWell. Problem is they don't won't to work hard and try to better themselves. They take the easy and wrong way because of poor decisions and blame society for the results. You can give people opportunities, but if they don't take them it is their choice and they need to suffer the consequences. I am through pitying people for bad decisions they make.
