The Raceway gas station at 2161 Gordon Highway was robbed early this morning, according to the Richmond County Sheriff's Office.

A police report says that two men entered the store about 2:20 a.m., displayed a sawed-off shotgun and demanded money from the register and an unknown amount of cigarettes and cigars.

The suspects also forced another man in the store to give them $50 and his cell phone.

The thieves fled in a black Mazda Protégé.

One robber was described as black, 19 to 25 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He wore a black jacket and blue jeans and covered his face with a green bandanna. He was carrying the sawed-off shotgun.

The second robber was described as black, 19 to 25 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He also wore a black jacket and blue jeans.

Two black guys robbed a

Two black guys robbed a station on Ga. Ave. in North Augusta this past week, and a shotgun was used. A man was robbed on Olive Rd. and a shotgun was used. Gotta be the same two guys. Also a woman was car-jacked in NA about two weeks ago. A pistol was used, but these guys fit the general description, especially the wearing of the bandannas.

This story isnt true. A black man would not have a shotgun and rob people. It is just not true.

It does sound like the same

It does sound like the same two guys. It appears that it's adrenalin rush and they just keep going until they get caught. I'm just glad no one has been hurt or shot. I hope they catch them very, soon. Obviously, they are confident that they can keep on this robbing spree.

10 year mandatory minimum

10 year mandatory minimum sentence...I hope TAS is right. I rather have my money spent on fixing pot holes instead of pot heads.
