Couple find two armed men robbing home

An Augusta man and his girlfriend came home about 5:30 p.m. Friday to find two armed men inside his home.

According to a Richmond County sheriff's report, the man said that one of the men brandished a black handgun and the other a pearl-handled firearm at his home in the 3100 block of Mike Padgett Highway.

The men took a wallet containing $1,500, a brown and white puppy valued at $1,000 and a Dell laptop computer valued at $500.

They then fired two rounds in the direction of the man and fled.

Carlos Sylvon Staley, 33, of Deans Bridge Road, was arrested after being found near the home with a weapon fitting the description. The computer and dog were found on Bell Drive.

Police were searching Saturday for the other intruder. He was described as black, 18 to 24 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 pounds.

No one injured in fire in Columbia County

Columbia County firefighters responded to a fire Saturday that caused damage to a home on the 4700 block of Canterbury Lane. No one was injured.

Firefighters responded to a 6:30 p.m. call from a neighbor, and flames were visible, said Honey Shore, spokeswoman for Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue. The fire was put out within 15 minutes, she said.

No one was home at the time. The family's two dogs were rescued. An exterior wall of the home, the kitchen and the attic above the kitchen had some fire damage, Ms. Shore said.

What is that elephant doing

What is that elephant doing in the room? What do you mean what elephant?? You can't see that elephant??? Are you blind???
You'll get banned from posting if you see or mention the elephant?!!!? Oh. Now, I see! If you notice certain obvious things and write about them, they will remove your posts. Isn't that sorta like "lying"? That's unethical. Yea, we do live in an unethical society. Nevertheless, that's the way it is. Truth is as welcome as a diseased whore at a church function. Slap that fat elephant on his arse and make him move. He's taking up a lot of space. Oh nooooooooooo!!! I mentioned the elephant. I'm banned.

Maybe one of the intruders was arguing with someone last night at the Economy Inn on Deans Bridge Road about 1:23am.
