According to a news release, Freddie Walker has been charged with entering an auto in reference to vehicle break-ins at First Baptist Church, Omni, the Ice Forum, Georgia Military Academy and a break-in in North Augusta. Investigators said the incidents began in the latter part of April, with the most recent one May 12.

The arrest came after investigators located a sky blue '90s model Chrysler New Yorker used in the crimes.

Investigators are also looking for 26-year-old Hubbard Garrett III , a suspect in the Richmond County break-ins who has an outstanding warrant in North Augusta . It is unknown if he is associated with Walker, police said.

So when can I get my stuff

So when can I get my stuff back? Pay me back for that $275 car window too. Scumbags. Put them on a chain gang and make them do some real work.

At least steal the car so you don't have to drive around in a sky blue '90s model Chrysler New Yorker.

His tax payer funded state appointed attorney probably had him back on the streets by the time this article was printed.

probably and unearned income

probably and unearned income tax credit. Both white and black scam the system with this liberal idea of a tax refund when they paid none in.

More of the same....no

More of the same....no personal responsibility or acountibility. A LONG time behind bars is necessary for those who fail to respect others or their property. Enough is enough.

Richmond county police

Richmond county police department is a JOKE! My car was broken into in April and this moron they're now looking for this Hubbard Garrette was already in their custody a week after he broke into my car and 16 fellony charges on him.....how in the world did he get out of jail and is now wanted yet again for the same crimes he was arrested on not even a month ago. Why did RCSD let this thug out on the streets for a second go around to break into more people's cars? One word....idiots.

@ugagirl14...my house was

@ugagirl14...my house was broken into and the perps were out in a few days. One of them (a juvenile) went on to break into even more houses after mine. Right now he is at home relaxing and enjoying his profits. No punishment, no time for the crime.

@asitis...I'm still trying to figure out this crazy system in Augusta. I've not seen anything like this anywhere else. Criminals seem to get away with a lot here.

ugagirl, you're focusing your

ugagirl, you're focusing your anger on the wrong group...it isn't the RCSD you should be angry at. These guys deal with low-life punks every single day, so they hate to see these idiots picked up one day for something, and then the courts or the attorneys let them out of jail the next day!

The photo provided on this

The photo provided on this site is not the current booking photo. Go to "Inmate Inquiry" on the RCSD website for Walker's current booking photo. There is a marked difference in appearance between the two photos.

looks like "ole" hubbard
Unpublished

looks like "ole" hubbard doesn't fall from the tree, seem hubbard has ambitions to be stock car or indy race car drive (citiations for speeding), since he is hubbard III, listed in the case mngmnt section are 2 individuals one is hubbard, and the other is hubbard jr. (btw, both hubbard sr/jr have the same first name of our "upstanding" citizen hubbard III), well it's only a matter of time before "ole" hubbard III will be pulling hard time for a violent crime some time in the future....
