Augusta burglary suspect nabbed after falling into ditch

A teen is in jail after he ran from the scene of a crime and fell into a 12-foot ditch, police said. A second suspect is also in custody.

According to Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Aaron Hannsz, deputies responded to Silver Bullet Lounge, 2423 Milledgeville Road, for a burglary alarm around 5:20 a.m. Thursday.

After deputies arrived, the teen, Rakim Hopgood, 17, ran out of the building and fell into the ditch, where he injured his knee.

When deputies returned to the business, they found a second man, Dennis Hilliard Jr., 22, hiding inside.

Police said more than $350 in alcohol had been moved outside.

Hopgood and Hilliard have been charged with burglary and possession of tools during the commission of a crime.
