  • Follow Crime & courts

Police are looking for a man who paid for his dinner with counterfeit bills Saturday.

According to a Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s report, a Pizza Hut delivery man went to an address in the 2500 block of Richmond Hill Road around 3 p.m. and was paid with two $20 bills. When the man returned to the store, he discovered the bills were counterfeit.

Officers called the home but were told the man lives in Barton Village.

Huh? Police just call and ask

Huh? Police just call and ask about a crime? Then they give up looking for the law breaker? Something's not right here.

Counterfeit money

Probably turned it over to the Feds, that's their jurisdiction.

"The man lives in Barton Village"

Darn a combination of both Barton Village & Richmond Hill Rd.Area
I wonder what the connection is here? Could it be Poor Augusta Zoning, Section 8 dispersal planning?

Sarcasm off

What a fool,using counterfeit bills to purchase Pizza.
He is looking at 5 to 10 Years for this seriously STUPID stunt.

For about $25 worth of Pizza the taxpayers are looking at:
$900k to $1.5 million to try, convict and court appeals, medical and house this idiot over the course of his sentence.

Who is the winner and loser here.

Yep, pretty soon pizza

Yep, pretty soon pizza delivery guys will quit taking cash. They will all have those card readers on their cell phones and only accept stolen or cloned credit cards.

Tear down that Barton Village !!
Unpublished

And those apartments on Richmond Hill Rd. Sore eyes. Sore eyes. They are an evil temptation and breeding ground for the weak and gainfully unemployed Black community. New housing, with green spaces, parks, lakes, canals, paddle boats, bike trails, etc. will eliminate to need to forage for cash. Logic says old building breed crime. Tear them down.. Sore eyes every one. Sore eyes. The man said sore eyes in his district.

If the only resource the APD

If the only resource the APD had was a phone it's time to take officers and resources off of traffic duty and put them in the crime division. What excuse can be made for not sending an officer to the address the money passed. While a interesting concept, calling criminals to ask if they did the deed may not work.
