Richmond County sheriff’s investigators said today they hope to obtain video of a robbery outside Bank of America, 1749 Gordon Highway, Tuesday evening.

According to a Sheriff’s Office incident report, a U-Haul employee was making a deposit around 7:30 p.m. at the drive-up night box when an unidentifed man grabbed the deposit.

The 40-year-old victim told authorities he struggled with the robber, then drove after the bandit as he ran through the parking lot with the money before escaping by running through a wooded field.

Police said there was no evidence of a weapon during the robbery.

I like the headline using

I like the headline using "someone." It's like we don't know who was robbed. But this whole thing is just another robbery at a bank in Augusta. Ho hum. The age with John Dillinger has nothing on 2012 Augusta.
