According to a Richmond County incident report, the buildings at 100 Myrtle Boulevard were ransacked between Friday at 3 p.m. and Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.

The stolen items were an $18,000 stainless steel skimmer trough, a $600 pump, $200 worth of water treatment chemicals, a $500 computer and two tool boxes and a storage unit valued at $100 each.

The responding deputy observed that a fence and a lock on the back gate were cut. A burglar gained entry to the buildings by breaking a side window on the main building and prying open a shed door.

You're right. Gracewood is true South Augusta. Wrightsboro and Jackson are not even close. "We" know where Gracewood is but the AC does not. :)
