Authorities are looking for a male suspect following a Monday armed robbery in Richmond County.

At 5:08 p.m., deputies responded to the 3200 block of Wrightsboro Road where three victims stated they were robbed of cell phones and money, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

The victims say they were pulling into a carwash on Jackson Road when the suspect approached the driver’s side of the vehicle with a black semi-automatic handgun, the report said.

After complying with the suspect, the victims say he ran to the back of Heritage Apartments.

The suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s. He was last seen wearing a red shirt, blue jeans, with a muscular build and dreads that were tiedbehind his head.

Stole cellphones?

I do not understand why there is not a central database of cellphone ESN's, where reported stolen phones get listed. It would make them useless to anyone but the legitimate owner. It would also give them a lead on those possessing stolen phones when they try to activate them.

This is a brand new car wash

This is a brand new car wash right across from the post office at Jackson Rd and Wrightsboro Road intersection and one of the local library branches. With the increase in traffic due to the car wash, maybe it can be patrolled a little more frequently for awhile to discourage opportunistic criminals like this.
