Determined thieves didn’t let a barbed wire fence stop them from stealing equipment from an Augusta business this weekend,

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report, thieves got over the barbed wire at

MCK Industrial Recycling, 1419 McCauley St., between Saturday afternoon and Monday afternoon and then pried off steel mesh covering the door. They took a generator, air compressor and cutting torches and rolled them out through a hole they cut in the fence.

Vigilance

We citizens need the crime reports. It helps us citizens to be vigilant about our surroundings and to help law enforcement fight crime.
