Augusta teen accused of burglary, stealing vehicle Friday

An Augusta teen accused of stealing a vehicle was later implicated in a burglary Friday.

About 5 a.m., Richmond County sheriff’s deputies responded to the 1800 block of Welsh Lane, where Williams White said he found three black males inside his 1999 Chevrolet Suburban, according to an incident report.

When White approached the SUV, the suspects started the vehicle and tried to leave. After driving 10 feet, they stopped the vehicle and ran.

Police later arrested Keunte Loreon Green, 17, of Cook Road, and charged him with theft of a motor vehicle, jail records show.

While in custody, Green admitted to burglarizing a home in the 1800 block of Green Street just minutes after the first incident.

About 5:12 a.m., deputies met with Natasha McBride, who told them she came home and heard someone inside her house, an incident report said.

When she shouted that she would call the police, the suspects ran out the back door. McBride said that a rear window had been pried open and two televisions had been moved to the back door.

Green also was charged with burglary.
