George D’Antignac, 31, told police that he had just purchased items from Family Dollar at 1713 Walton Way about 8:30 p.m. when he was approached in the 1700 block of Starnes Street by a black male wearing a hooded sweatshirt that covered his face, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

D’Antignac said the suspect brandished a black revolver and was joined by three more black males. D’Antignac said he recognized two in the group, including a neighbor’s 15-year-old nephew, whom he recognized by his crippled left hand.

D’Antignac said two of the group recognized him and told the others to stop, but the 15-year-old brandished a silver .22-caliber handgun. Two of the suspects stole $11 from D’Antignac’s pockets before fleeing.

Police say the 15-year-old admitted going to Family Dollar around the time of the robbery but said he was only with one other person.

Police were unable to find a handgun in the teen’s bedroom.

"+4 living the dream and starting early. Guess they don't qualify for welfare and food stamps yet."
My bet is they are on welfare and food stamps.

Running interference for her prepubescent thug wannabee nephew.

Another dysfunctional family, no doubt.

No body ever said crooks were smart. Most act out on impulses that they can't control. Robbing and getting nothing and shooting over nothing. Weak minded always!
