Weightlifting equipment stolen from Salvation Army

  • Follow Latest News

Two apparently fit individuals stole dumbbell weights and circle weights for a bench press bar from the Salvation Army Augusta sometime early Wednesday morning.

The theft was discovered by an employee when she came to work at the building in the 1300 block of Greene Street around 9 a.m. Surveillance camera footage shows two men jumping the fence with the help of a cinderblock, then pushing a picnic bench up to the fence so they can steal the weights. A Richmond County sheriff's report shows they stole 12 weights total, including four 45-pound weights and a bench press weight bar.

The camera was too far away to get a good picture of the thieves, but the complainant said she would press charges.

Hopefully they will get

Hopefully they will get caught and sentenced to prison. Then they can use the weights provided by the State. To risk getting caught for a set of weights worth maybe $ 200, how stupid.
