Two men robbed a store on Lumpkin Road at gunpoint Tuesday morning, police said.

A witness told police that the men entered Sunni’s Neighborhood Store at 2849 Lumpkin Road with white T-shirts wrapped around their faces, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

One of the men jumped onto the counter and snatched the cash register while the other produced a handgun and threatened the clerk, the report said. The men then ran from the store with the cash register, which is valued at about $1,000.

And no one was killed? That's amazing since Augusta seems to be becoming the murder capital of the US.

Nicole4's post sounds like

Nicole4's post sounds like SHE received the same education as jismojr. Did her first sentence make sense to anyone but her? "They must to have attended......" How about her spelling of "youer"? "did they not teach youer dumb a** nothing"? The language skills of the average Augustan is appalling. It's no wonder that Obama was elected by the uneducated masses of America.

Glad you're both OK,

Glad you're both OK, Reginald. Hope they get you back your cash register in good shape, or that your insurance more than covers it. Good luck in the future.
