Man says passenger stole $3,900 from him

A 62-year-old Augusta man told Richmond County deputies that he had $3,900 stolen from his truck on Thursday by a man he had given a ride.

According to a Richmond County sheriff's report, the man said he was approached at the Tractor Supply Company at 596 Bobby Jones Expressway by a man who asked for a ride. The man rode with the driver to the Walgreens at 3228 Wrightsboro Road and then to the Wachovia Bank at 3430 Wrightsboro Road. When they got to the bank, the driver told the passenger to get out of the vehicle. The driver then went inside a nearby Burger King for a drink. When he came out of the restaurant, he saw the right door of his truck was open and the passenger was running away.
