Augusta woman suspected of stealing cash withdrawn with co-worker's ATM card

An Augusta woman suspected of using a co-worker’s ATM card to withdraw $800 was arrested and charged with theft Wednesday, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Karen Hyman, of the 500 block of West Richmond Hill Road, told police that Lisa Weaver, of Hephzibah, asked her to withdraw the cash. The women work at McDonalds on Barton Chapel Road.

Hyman said when she got back in her car at the ATM at Kroger on Deans Bridge Road, a man got in the passenger side and pointed a gun at her, according to the report.

Hyman told police the man took the cash, told her to drive to Circle K on Lumpkin Road, then punched her in the face before fleeing, according to the report. The deputy observed no marks on Hyman’s face.

According to the report, Weaver, of the 3400 block of Pine Hill Road, told police she asked Hyman to withdraw $400 for her because she did not have a car to get to the ATM.
