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.

The same man 2x before

Maybe it is time to call RCSO when he pulls up and not as he walks out the door.

BTW: A Green Dodge Durango SUV looks something like this

He knows even if he's caught nothing will happen to him. He probably feels he's entitled to the beer.

Augusta homicides up, but no cases recently
Although Augusta homicides are up compared with this time last year, police say a two-month absence of any is proof that some of their crime initiatives are paying off.
