Batteries missing from three trucks

  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta business had six batteries stolen from three box trucks this weekend.

David Frazier of Com­plete Residential Siding and Insulation at 3307 Com­merce Drive said the batteries were taken from two trucks in front of the building and one in the back between 5 p.m. Saturday and
7 a.m. Monday, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

Frazier said the batteries were outside of the trucks, behind the front cab.

The report said officers noticed empty spaces on all three where the batteries would normally sit.

Protect private property -

Protect private property - Shoot to Kill. It's the only way we are going to protect our personal belongings. The cops are not going to do anything to catch these guys, and if they do, the courts will not keep them locked up. I had a burglary on my place twice this year and the second time the investigator didn't even come to the site and look at it. They never take fingerprints to see if they can lift any to identify these people. Once you get a copy of the police report, you never hear anything else from the cops again. I had to take the photos of the tire tracks and sent them to the investigator, but I doubt anything was ever done with it. The law enforcement in most all the CSRA counties is absolutely horrible when it comes to investigating and catching these kinds of criminals. I've heard of two other incidents in neighboring counties recently and the victims told me in one county the responding officer acted like it was a chore to fill out the report and another county's law enforcement told the victim they were not even going to try and find his stolen stuff because they didn't have a way to identify if the items stolen were his or not. They come up with more excuses to not do their jobs instead of busting these crooks and locking them up for life so we all may live in peace and not worry about our belongings being stolen.
