2 men robbed in Augusta after failed marijuana purchase

Two Washington, Ga., men told the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office they were robbed at gunpoint after they tried to buy marijuana in the 1700 block of Valley Park East.

The victims, Justin Alan Wilson, 22, and Brandon Ray Webb, 23, told officers they were on Wrightsboro Road about 9 p.m. Monday when a man approached and asked them if they would like to purchase some marijuana.

The men followed the suspect, known as “Bradon,” to Valley Park, where they gave him their money. Before handing over the marijuana, the suspect fled, police said.

The victims told officers they were returning to their vehicle when three men with handguns approached and demanded their clothes and money.

According to the report, the two victims wished to prosecute for the robbery but did not wish to prosecute or have a report done in reference to “Bradon” and the theft of their money for the marijuana purchase.
