The suspect, described as a light-skinned black male between 18 and 30 years old, was seen Saturday entering the Waffle House on 3411 Mike Padgett Highway with a Wal-Mart bag over his right hand. The suspect is being accused of jumping the counter, demanding money from the cashier, and leaving with an unknown amount of cash, according to a statement from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Early Sunday, deputies responded to the Sprint gas station at 3444 Mike Padgett Highway in regards to a robbery, the statement said. The suspect is believed to be the same man involved in the Waffle House robbery, according to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect was described as wearing a black sleeveless shirt (Jack Daniels brand) and red gym shorts. The suspect was also last seen running east towards Apple Valley subdivision.

The reward amount was not made available, but anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

Just to offer the obvious

I am betting the thug lives within a mile of Bobby Jones and Hwy 56, but not actually in Apple Valley.

The problems of Augusta has being migrating out to:
Hwy 56 Hill,
Gracewood Hill.

The problems have already started their crawled and spread up:
Windsor Spring Hill,
Morgan Rd hill,
and Dean Bridge Rd. hills.

The problems has exponentially spread over the last 16 yrs. and with Federal/State & yes DOWNTOWN'S Planned Relocation Assistance.

So unless the South-Side De-consolidates in the next 5 years, it too will succumb to Augusta's Problems as the relocation plan continues to allow the rebuilding of downtown, by using Other districts tax $$$$.

Law enforcement

--our protectors do not get paid very well - businesses must hire them for an acceptable salary and if they are guarded and the guards mean business, (shoot if you have to) - maybe this mayhem will come to an end. Something needs to be done - be it North, South, East or West in this area. The criminals have no fear - the employees are putting their lives on the line every day they come to work to earn an honest dollar and the robbers laugh all the way to the next drug dealer. Get rid of them one way or the other!!!

What difference will it make if they catch the perp? He'll likely get a slap on the wrist and nothing more from some liberal judge. The cops are just wasting money.
