Richmond County deputies are searching for a convicted burglar who is accused of threatening to kill his ex-partner and family because the ex-partner got out of jail quicker than the burglar did, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

At 5 p.m. Sunday, deputies were called to the 1600 block of Cider Lane in reference to threats via text. When they arrived, a 61-year-old woman told deputies her grandson got into a fight Thursday night with a group of men because her grandson had spent less time in jail than another man convicted of the same crime, the report said.

During the fight, her grandson’s phone was taken. Since then, she has been receiving text messages on her phone threatening to “shoot up the house,” and kill her, her daughter and her grandson, the report said.

Sounds like you've got yourself a true pillar of the community, grandson. Appears that your grandson needs to be either working on graduation and grades, or he needs to be @ a tech school, learning a trade. You and his Mom need to FORCE him to find new "friends".

We don't know how old the grandson is. Once an adult, how do you force someone to change their friends? You can't. Meanwhile, someone is threatening to kill a few people. That needs taking care of before trying to convince someone to change their friends.

I hope they find him and give him some more time since he hasn't learned anything. What a punk!
