Gold jewelry, revolver stolen from Augusta home


About $1,700 in gold jewelry and a gun were reportedly stolen from an Augusta home Monday.

Paulette Stoney, 63, of the 2700 block of Marschalk Road, said a burglar broke into her house by busting in the back door between 1:45 and 3:15 p.m., according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

Stoney said the suspect took four 14-karat gold rings, five 14-karat gold chains, and an unknown number of 14-karat gold bracelets, as well as her black .38-caliber revolver.

The report says the deputies noted her room was ransacked.
