The police stopped a vehicle

which then pulled into the Kroger parking lot. While checking out the vehicle, a suspicious package was found. All the action appears to be in the parking lot. The store is open but the entire lot is blocked off.

Dixieman, their original plan

Dixieman, their original plan was North Richmond, then they changed their mind. Aiken would be more meaningful.

Wonder what constitutes a suspicious package.

Wonder why some fool with outstanding arrest warrants and illegal substances risk being pulled over.

Double Standard!!!!

Why does the AC insist on publishing such negative items about Aiken and Aiken county???? Parts of Aiken County have some of the highest median incomes in the entire area!!

Comparing the the 2000 census to the 2013 census estimate, the population of North Augusta alone has grown at a rate that is 26 times that of Augusta- Richmond County!!

(This is fun! no wonder nortonguy posts like this all the time ☺)

@ geecheeriverman

To answer your question of 0454... median incomes have ZERO to do with this crime.
I was posting some over-the-top sarcasm. There is a poster that deflects crime reports with quotes of median incomes, population growth, demographics, and other non-related drivel, rather than just admit that a serious crime has been commited.
