Stolen credit card numbers linked to Somewhere in Augusta customers

Richmond County investigators are looking into reports of credit card numbers being stolen from Somewhere in Augusta.

Investigator Joshua Faison said a bank notified the sheriff’s office that several customers complained of fraudulent transactions and had used their cards at the Washington Road bar and restaurant.

Faison said it does not appear that anyone locally is stealing the information. Investigators suspect the theft is coming from the company that processes the credit cards.

Investigators do not have a time period for when the thefts occurred.

Anyone who has been victimized is advised to contact their bank or credit card company and file a police report.
