Four people were arrested Tuesday in connection with an armed robbery reported the day before at a Washington Road motel.

Lacey T. Edwards, 25, Joshua C. Josey, 22, Christopher H. Collins, 30, and Alton Henry Rau III, 24, are charged with armed robbery and were being held at the Richmond County jail without bond.

The arrests stem from an incident reported Monday at the La Quinta Inn, 3020 Washington Road, according to Richmond County sheriff’s records.

A Martinez man told police that he and his girlfriend were in the motel’s Room 111 when the woman received a call from Edwards asking whether she and Josey could stop by. The man said Edwards and Josey came to the motel about 8 p.m. and brought two other men with them. After the four entered the room an argument ensued and the girlfriend left. The man said Edwards pointed a black handgun at him and the four robbed him of about $300 cash, some jewelry and his cellphone. The victim said the incident had a connection to a previous conflict in Columbia County.

I am fed up with this

Time after time we see the same crime being committed.
The citizenry can plainly see by now that with better control and even possible elimination, many such crimes could not occur without their use.

It is time we ban or have Motel Room control.

Background Info

Christopher H. Collins - Previous records - Already out on bond for a Burglary charge on or about 5/22/2012 and is awaiting Trial already

Lacey T. Edwards - Previous recordS & already on Probation. According to the article she is the Pistol Packing Mama.

Alton Henry Rau III - Previous recordS & currently out on Bond March 2nd, 2012 and already awaiting trial.

It would be interesting to see to the "victims" names to paint a better prospective of the incident.

Clearly some type of "meeting" was set up willingly by the Guy in Room 111.

BTW:
Joshua C. Josey - No previous Adult records - noted at this time.

CG, I am 100% positive you

CG, I am 100% positive you can see the difference between getting arrested for armed robbery and getting strangled to death for shoplifting. 100% positive.

Mind you, that neither condones shoplifting, nor implies that the man's death was deliberate. I'm still certain you can see that there exists a difference between the two situations besides "White Folks". Or has your new outlook on race you announced after the Presidential election become that overpowering?

"Or has your new outlook on race you announced after the Presidential election become that overpowering?"

Just statistics and facts.

Christopher H. Collins released early from prison May 2010 after serving a term for robbery and robbery in possession of a firearm. This child was lost many years ago.

His outlook on race is no different than those who claim that all the criticism of Obama is because of his race. What's good for the goose.....

HA, ACES removed the post I reference when CG posted it, and I will "respect" their decision and not repeat what he proclaimed himself to be. You really don't want to be publicly known as sharing CG's new proclaimed mindset, I promise you. Be careful on this one -- I am not the only forum goer who saw his announcement before it was pulled.

No, I'm referencing an announcement CG made the day after the Presidential election that the election results had caused him to adopt a new "attitude", if you get my drift.

But re-reading your 9:38, I understand what you're getting at, and I don't think it means you are sharing that "attitude" in any way. I agree that that type of "attitude" is repulsive, regardless of which direction it's going.

Nah, ACES wouldn't hide or censor us on these boards would they? But I do remember seeing the post and simply put it down to a combo of "reserve" and pain killers which CG freely admits to, God bless his grumpy lil' ol' heart.

I wonder what excuses others have for their personal bitterness?

Well heck CG, you made a

Well heck CG, you made a public announcement. I would think you'd remember what you said in your own words.

But I think RA's looking at this the right way, emotions were high that day, and everyone's said things in the heat of the moment that maybe go farther than their true feelings. I know I have. It's the sum of day-by-day thoughts and actions that form our measure, and every day is a new opportunity to be the person we aspire to be.

OMG

Since CG brought it up, I'm shocked I tell you, shocked that white people are allegedly commiting crimes of violence in our community.

Now remember folks, I didn't open this can, just commented upon it and the worms that will flow from it.

That's sarcasm, by the way.

"I wonder what excuses others have for their personal bitterness?"

I often wonder what drives bitter, personal attacks on such a regular basis, myself.

Day After Election

was 20 days ago and I reviewed all my post on that date.

Are you referring to the one that was pulled about me saying I am now a Racist?

Humble Angela is on your ignore list. Click here to view this post.

I like this facility on this page. See how well it works. Sorta like the lockout provision on my Cable for bad TV.

We use that around here for Faux Gnus and porn channels(about the same to me). After all, my kids and grandkids frequent our home. Wish there was a similar facility for AM Radio. Ah well, I guess a little responsible action on my part is still the right thing to do.

I Be Damned

I have a folder with what I thought contained every post that I have had pulled from the beginning of time....but that one is not there.

Burn, you must have saved it, would you mind sending it to me, you have my email address. I'm almost positive I must have given my reason for saying that.

Sean's reason for pulling it made sense and I accepted it and I think I replied with a Thanks.

CG, any post that Sean pulls is trashed from both the boards and your online history. Wiped clean, nada, zip.

Only if you(or others) take the effort to save them to your computer will you have a copy.

You didn't forget to save that particular post did you? I distinctly remember it and it's almost immediate disapearance.

Hell it was taken down so fast that I didn't even get a chance to scold you for posting under the influence, because i know you're not THAT dumb.:)

Most of you know that I try to reference the post that I'm commenting on to avoid confusion. Since it was gone, I couldn't.
