A 22-year-old Augusta man told deputies he waited nearly a week to report an AK-47 theft because he didn’t know a report was necessary.

The victim told authorities the assault rifle was stolen from his 1990s model Honda while it was parked in the parking lot of Club Cream at 1511 North Leg Road on Wednesday. According to an incident report, the victim returned to his vehicle to find the back door partially left open.

The theft was reported to officers Monday.

That's reckless endangerment.

Please secure your defenses, the life and license you save may be your own.

He's 22, in a 90s car, parked

He's 22, in a 90s car, parked at a bar, and returned to find his door partially closed. Sounds like he didn't lock his door. Why wouldn't he lock his door with a gun inside? Why would he leave a gun in a parked car period? Why would he be riding around with an assault rifle? He's only 22? Why does he even have that gun? Sounds like he's totally irresponsible. And being he had that gun and was at that club, chances are he's a thug. And he probably didn't report it that night because he was drunk and going to drive home or either he was drunk and didn't notice the gun was even gone. I wonder if it happened on a Wednesday night when people can get in for $20 and drink unlimited booze? A night which is often followed by fights and shootings, many of which occur at local Waffle Houses?
