Robber steals fare for bus ticket

A robber snatched an Au­gusta man’s $200 bus fare from the counter at a bus station around 3 p.m. Sunday, according to an incident report.

John W. O’Bryant was trying to buy a ticket to Detroit at Southeastern Stages, 1128 Greene St., when the man, wearing a black hoodie and tan pants, grabbed the cash and fled. He was last seen running east on Telfair Street, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

A security camera was inoperable, and the bus company provided O’Bryant a replacement bus ticket, the report said.
