2 assault rifles, marijuana found in North Augusta car

NORTH AUGUSTA - North Augusta police recovered two fully loaded assault rifles and an ounce of marijuana Monday morning from a car that was abandoned in the 1000 block of Skyview Drive.

An anonymous tip about a suspicious vehicle circling the block took public safety officers to Skyview Drive about 1 a.m. An officer said a tall man wearing a white T-shirt ran out of the vehicle as he approached, but the man was not apprehended.

When the officer returned to the car, two other men wearing black clothing bailed out of the car but could not be found. In addition to the weapons and drugs, officers said they confiscated two cell phones.
