Woman's clothes stolen while on trip

An Augusta woman had more than $4,000 in clothing and electronics taken from her home while she was out of town on an extended job interview, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

Vickie Faulkner, 49, told deputies she asked a man to water her plants Aug. 29 while she was in Boston. When she realized she would not be coming back to Augusta, she asked a family friend to get her possessions.

The friend told her it was difficult to find the man tasked with watering her plants, and that many of her possessions were missing. Faulkner said she was told her clothes had been donated to Goodwill.
