Ricardo Williams, 29, was at the Pak-N-Go at 1649 Olive Road about 12:30 p.m., when he was approached by a black man wearing a black ski mask and brandishing a handgun, demanding money, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The suspect took $100 from Williams, then ordered him to withdraw money from an ATM inside the Pak-N-Go using his debit card. After Williams withdrew a total of $280, the robber ran away.

Williams then flagged down a passing deputy. The suspect’s image was captured on the store’s surveillance system, according to the report.

Brazen Robber

What a brazen robber to make the man go inside that way. It's a shame that a person who has saved a few hundred bucks gets it taken by a low level scumbag. To me it's a worse crime when a working class person is hit over the holidays...not that I know for a fact Mr. Williams is that, but I assume.

But this floors me

A mother wanting to sue a shooter because he shot her son while he was robbing someone...THAT takes the cake.

"the police can't be everywhere"

That is exactly why police can not protect you, and you need to prepare to protect yourself.
That is not a slap at LE, it is just a fact.

PICTURE PLEASE

Given "The suspect’s image was captured on the store’s surveillance system, according to the report."

Picture Please.

Anyone have or know of a public App or Web Site that allows a person to track Crimes in a given circle based on a reference point?

There are some 2 mile circles I would love to check.

Just one more reason

for Concealed Carry...

When seconds count, law enforcement is only minutes away.
