North Augusta home invasion reported

  • Follow Crime & courts

Two armed men forced their way into a North Augusta apartment Tuesday evening, demanding marijuana and money, according to an incident report.

A victim told authorities the men, wearing bandanas and armed with pistols, pushed their way in after he answered knocks at his door in the 1100 block of Weston Street about 10:30 p.m.

Two people in the apartment's den were hit on the head several times and were made to lie on the floor while the assailants made their demands. Although he said he didn't have any marijuana, one victim handed over his pants and wallet.

The apartment owner's 18-year-old daughter said the robbers also kicked in the door of the bathroom where she had been hiding and led her out with the other victims by gunpoint, police said. The intruders took money, a wallet and car keys before leaving, police said.

Why would they assume pot was in the apt? Is it SOP to demand illegal drugs when you break into someones home?

Weston St. has been a problem

Weston St. has been a problem in North Augusta for over 30 years. You would think that NADPS would break away from writing speeding tickets for 5mph over the speed limit to clean up this area. North Augusta has plenty of police cars that they could patrol two cars around that area and Chalet North area 24hrs. a day and that would run the thugs from that area. The thugs would be screaming Five-O all day and night.

The story states that the

The story states that the girl "was hiding in the bathroom". You aren't "hiding" if taking a shower. Legalize weed and people wouldn't have dealers to rob. Buy it at the pharmacy and eradicate the criminal elements. At least you would have a record of the users and abusers. If people want weed, somebody is going to supply it. The question is; who would you prefer the supplier to be? The State or The Cartel? It's that simple.

Keeping this element in one

Keeping this element in one area is the idea behind not going in and simply clear out the nest....just keep them contained and there's no spill over to other communities.
