An Augusta auto parts store was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night.

O’Reilly Auto Parts, 3297 Deans Bridge Road, was held up by two black males wearing red bandanas, black hooded sweatshirts and armed with pistols. One was wearing black pants, the other had on blue jeans. They came to the store around 8:30 p.m. Saturday and demanded cash, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office said.

They were handed an undisclosed amount and fled behind the store, according to sheriff’s Lt. Robbie Silas.

No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

Red bandanas....seems like the last armed robber in the area had on a red bandana.

Maybe it is time for O'reilly

Maybe it is time for O'reilly to install a video system. In fact why don't we have a county ordinance (to protect workers) that requires owners to have a video system if they are going to be open after dark? My system at my house cost a whopping 300 dollars for 4 cameras. That isn't a lot to pay to insure worker safety.

The red bandanas would make the video system of no use.

Are the red bandanas a gang

Are the red bandanas a gang symbol or are these thugs just channeling the Wild West outlaws?
