Augusta man charged with robbing pizza delivery woman

An Augusta man was arrested Tuesday and charged in the armed robbery of a pizza delivery woman over the weekend.


Jamie Truvone Miller, 21, was charged with armed robbery, kidnapping and possession of a firearm during a crime after Richmond County authorities said he robbed and tied up a Pizza Hut delivery woman with duct tape Sunday as she delivered a pizza to the 300 block of Alene Court, in the Meadow Grove subdivision off Deans Bridge Road.

The 28-year-old woman told investigators a man wearing blue jeans and a blue bandana answered the door pointing a silver handgun at her, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report. She was forced to lie on the floor and her hands and feet were tied.

Miller took $20 from the woman and told her to stay on the floor or she’d be killed, according to the report

Miller then left the house, and the woman managed to escape.

Miller was being held at the Richmond County jail Tuesday night, under a bond of $7,900, according to jail personnel.
