About 4:25 a.m., Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s deputies responded to a tripped alarm at C-Mart at 3403 Mike Padgett Highway. The front entrance was found shattered by a large rock, a police report says.

Aside from nearly $1,500 worth of cigarettes and about $630 worth of contact lenses, a bank bag containing $500 was also missing, according to the report. Deputies found the case for the contact lenses on a path behind the business.

Ok, I get the stolen smokes, addiction is rough. The money, we all get that one. Please A/C, please follow up on the contact lenses! I really did not know you could buy these anywhere other than an eye doctor. With any luck the perp will try to use them, won’t be able to see and will try to rob a police station.

The path leads to Neptune Drive

Some of ya'll might remember the 22 crimes covering:
Shooting, assaults, burglaries, a home invasion police calls and etc... for this area in the last year.

Looks like a good Target area for the RCSO

You guys need to get out more ...

These things are all over the place. They're not prescription lenses, kids buy them to change their eye color or put some stupid moniker on their eyes (they don't change your vision). Stupid none the less. Oh yeah, and good fodder to slam the President (for some weird reason).

Mr. C

Failed mayoral candidate Charles Cummings once owned a "supper club" where teenagers hung out with adults and where gunfire could be experienced from time to time. It was in the Tobacco Road area, if memory serves.

I wonder if he owns this convenience store?

.
The weird reason is that the incompetent boob in the Oval Office (when he's not on the golf course) makes it SO EASY!

Gas Station Contacts

Ranks right up there with gas station sushi. And would you go to a gas station, buy contacts, and then put them in your eyes? Really??
