Two teens arrested after armed robbery

  • Follow Crime & courts

Police arrested two teenagers Friday night in the armed robbery of an Augusta couple at a Bank of America ATM on Peach Orchard Road.

A 50-year-old man told police that two males approached him and his wife in their vehicle as they were making a deposit just after 11 p.m.

The man said a gun was pointed at his head as the suspect demanded money. After taking some cash, the two robbers fled the scene, the man told police.

Shortly after the crime occurred, officers saw a 15-year-old and 17-year-old Eddie Reese - who fit the description of the suspects - sprinting out in front of a building on Lumpkin Road. The teens, both of Augusta, then walked into the Charlestown South apartment complex, according to the police report.

Officers searched them and found Reese had a revolver and $35 in cash. The victim later arrived to identify the teenagers, according to the report.

Two little animals and one

Two little animals and one little gun off the streets. Hopefully for a lot of years. At this rate the prisons will double in volume in about 20 yrs ( taxpayer costs too).

We need to bring back Training Schools. They don't learn anything in YDC, but put them to work learning a trade.

Training schools are OK for

Training schools are OK for non Violent Offenders but over 70% of these just go on to killing folks so there are no witnesses next time. They cannot be let out to do it again so train them to be prison guards. That way they stay in prison and pay restitution.
The way things are going they'll never run out of work. ha haha

The ACLU and tv lawyers would

The ACLU and tv lawyers would love that. We need an escape proof penal colony with no authority. Dump em in and let them fight for the food thats dropped in. Thats the life they asked for. PS leave them there for good. Survival of the most fit.

Bring back the chain gang!! Being incarcerated should be no fun, no rest, no respite. Also, no TV, internet, etc.

I would not worry about the

I would not worry about the chain gang; If convicted of a "violent" crime, I would give EVERYONE a six month sentence. Six months to make amends with your family and friends; get right with "your" God, and then on the last day of the six months pull the switch on the chair; and hang a "vacancy available" sign outside the cell door. We can afford the electricity more than the rehab and rework that is not rehabing nor is it working !!

I don't care what they do to

I don't care what they do to those two. Too bad the victim did not have a weapon and use it.

Doug E Fresh, two against one- you would have a very good chance of being shot yourself. Just like that poor man in yesterday's AC.
