Richmond County police seek Hephzibah beer bandit


The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who they say stole several cases of beer from a Hephzibah gas station earlier this month.

About 1:30 p.m. Feb. 3, the suspect, described as a black man wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt and black pants, entered the Sprint Gas Station at 2480 Crosscreek Road and left with two 30-packs of beer that he didn’t pay for, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.

Police say the same man has shoplifted beer from the store on two other occasions. He was last seen getting into a green Dodge Durango that had its license plate covered.

Anyone with information can call Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Bert Gates at (706) 821-1059 or any on-duty investigator at (706) 821-1020.
