  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta man who tried to arrange a meeting with a woman at a motel through a Web site Wednesday was surprised when he found two men, posing as women, who stole his bank card.

Warren Jeffrey Collier, 25, of the 400 block of Cross Tree Ct., went to the Motel 6 on Boy Scout Road about 11 a.m., after agreeing to meet with someone he believed was named “Tiffany,” whom he contacted through a sex Web site, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

After entering the room, Collier told deputies he saw someone with a Taser by the door and another man, wearing a blue jean skirt, near the bed.

The men, later identified as 23-year-old Travius Houston, of Decatur, Ga., and 21-year-old Michael Strozier, listed as homeless, took Collier’s bank card and told him to leave.

He did, and called police. Authorities arrived to find an empty motel room but found two people hiding in nearby woods who matched Collier’s description of the men. A Taser was found in one of the men’s purses.

Collier, whose bank card was returned to him, said he didn’t want to prosecute.

Houston and Strozier were charged with disorderly conduct.

No harm . . .

no foul.

Do these motel desk clerks have the authority to refuse service to creepy-looking people?

Is that a Taser in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?

"...said he didn't want to prosecute..."
Nor did he want his name in the paper, I'll bet!
Too bad.
The wages of sin is no longer death, but publicity in today's world.

What is this world comig too?

When lonely guys ☺ can't even trust the C-List transvestite hookups to be honest citizens.☺

For you C-List shoppers, there are several categories to select from:

w4m
m4m
m4w
w4w
t4m
m4t

Chose wisely.☺

Question:
How many incidents does this make this year for that hotel or hotel area?

Normally mugshots get posted by the AC.
But since it is a Staff Report,
here they are and they look "sweet".☺

BTW: Here is a good PC example of misuse of wording.
The 2 are listed as "Homeless"?

Update:

"this is what the govamint schools and the Great Society has given us."

According to the Bible, this stuff has been around since the beginning of time.

TM, I went to public school before the start of the Great Society and Carter started the Dept of Ed. They have been dummying down the kids ever since.

As strange as it may seem, He would have been the one under police scrutiny if the deal had been consummated. I have never heard of paying a hooker with your debit card! Unless their industry has become high tech.

Listed as "homeless"

So these men were supposedly homeless? I wonder whose computer they used to set this up? Library? Internet cafe? Curious.

QUESTION

Why is the victims (if you can call it that) home address down to the street # posted?

I myself have been admonished for using the same level of detail.

Has the AC changed its rule on this level of info?
