Suspects sought after armed robbery

The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is searching for four suspects following an armed robbery at an area apartment complex Tuesday.


Approximately 11:29 a.m., Marcus Young III told deputies he was hit with a handgun “twice in the mouth and under his chin” before being robbed at gunpoint on the 2400 block of Amsterdam Drive, according to a Richmond County incident report.

The suspects are accused of stealing $30, as well as Young’s credit card, driver’s license and Nike shoes.

Young told deputies he was sitting in a car with his girlfriend when a blue PT Cruiser approached them. Following a brief conversation with one of the suspects, another suspect exited the PT Cruiser and pointed a handgun at Young. Young was then beaten with the handgun and robbed, the report said.

Three suspects have been named in the robbery: Jonathan Wells, 20, of Bream Avenue in Augusta, Rashawn Miller, 19, of Fawn Drive in Augusta, and Augusta resident Skye Thomas. The fourth suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-9 with a slim build who is in his late teens.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1020 or dispatch at (706) 821-1080.
