Three suspects are in custody after a home invasion late Tuesday in the 400 block of Stevens Creek Road, one of two such incidents reported in Richmond County.



According to a sheriff’s ofice news release, those arrested were:

• Harrison Grant Lee, 20, 900 block of Woody Hill Circle, Evans; charged with armed robbery, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm during a crime and possession by a convicted felon

• Dy’shon Vadolle Taylor, 19, 5300 block of Wind Mill Parkway, Evans; charged with armed robbery, burglary, and possession of a firearm during a crime

• Michael Vertron Smith, 24, 200 block of Lariat Court, Evans; charged with armed robbery and burglary

Police said the victims reported that three armed men entered their apartment and took money, cellphones and jewelry.

Deputies also searched Wednesday for two white men in connection with a Roberson Road home invasion that also took place about midnight.

In that incident, sheriff’s Lt. Calvin Chew said, the armed men, dressed in camouflage jumpsuits and ski masks, kicked in the door and demanded money and pills from the homeowner and threatened to shoot him.

A small child was asleep in the home at the time of the incident but was not threatened.

The bandits fled with prescription pills.

The homeowners should have

The homeowners should have had a shotgun or a judge pistol that shoots 4-10 shells.

Our Sheriff's first priority

Our Sheriff's first priority after taking office was to purchase a brand new tricked out $60,000 SUV for his luxury ride. Lobbying for a pay raise is now his first priority. I'd like to see him move Augusta's escalating crime up to the top of his priority list - and get busy fighting it on a full time basis!

Wish I could give you 1,000 thumbs up. IMO, we may well have another Ronnie Few squatting on local taxpayers' dime, enjoying himself at our expense. We shall see in due course if he promotes people based on their genuine ability or, rather, on their political correctness and demographic identification.

'Tree has a chance to do something good. Let's hope he's not a self-absorbed myopic when it comes to his obligations to the people of Richmond County--AAAAALL the people of Richmond County.

Oh, don't bother 'Tree. He's

Oh, don't bother 'Tree. He's got his hands full ordering SUVs and back rooming for a pay raise.

Just get you guns, protect yourself, your family, your home, and your property and kill anyone who comes visiting when you aren't expecting company.

Good that they are now in custody

How did they become in custody? Surely, they did not go in and admit their crime and give themselves up.

perusing the market place? From those who have to those without. It is the "new religion". Check your church mission statement. Social Justice may have replaced Spreading the Gospel. This would answer the question as to why the most spiritual culture can't avoid criminal acts.

Get your facts right - the whole rumor that Roundtree's SUV cost $60k is a lie. There were actually two vehicles bought. Here is the quote from Austin Rhodes on Facebook: "I just received a note from RC Chief Deputy Pat Clayton notifying me of an error that I unfortunately have been repeating since this morning.

The 60k price tag was for new Tahoes for BOTH he and Sheriff Roundtree. He says his was 25k, and the Sheriff's was 35k."

The location is wrong?

The loacation on the map shows the home invasion to be in Columbia Cty. It shows a location on Stevens Creek Rd. past Evan Lock. Where is it? Need to have facts when reporting.
