AIKEN -- Aiken County authorities are investigating an armed robbery of a North Augusta gas station that occurred last night.

Police say that about 10:30 p.m. two men entered the Kangaroo Express at 349 Edgefield Road, one pointing a gun at the cashier and demanding money. The cashier gave the person money from the register as the other suspect took some cigars and put them into a black bag, an Aiken County Sheriff's Office release states.

Both suspects, described as black and wearing all black clothing, gloves, ski masks and bandanas, then ran from the store. Police say the first man is further described as between the ages of 20 and 25, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds. The second man is described as between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Aiken County sheriff's Investigator Chuck Cain at (800) 922-9709 or Crime Stoppers of the Midlands at (888) 599-TIPS.

Yes they are typically the same. We are on a 4th generation of government sponsored,supported,raised and pampered thugs. They have no fear. I think it is time that the owners do something to stop this insanity. Maybe hire undercover security to shoot the lil' bastards right when they pull out the gun. Or maybe take them to Celest Ave and Bradlyville road and beat the ever living crap out of them in front of all their aunts and grandmas.

No the armed robbery in NORTH

No the armed robbery in NORTH Augusta, SC has exploded. They need to rename Hwy 25(Edgefield Road) to robbers road. And What the hell is the cops doing about it. Taking 2 hours to fill out reports. Chasing shadows with dogs. They need to be more proactive.

I am sick and tired of having to do business through a piece of glass. I feel like I am in South Augusta... not North Augusta.

Why would they discuss it.

Why would they discuss it. THEY WON. Besides, George Bush caused their kids to be punk scumbag thieves. Wait, that excuse won't cut it now. I'm sure that when they get free medical care, ACORN gets control of the census, and the New Black Panthers are appointed as polling place guards, then their kids will stop sticking guns in our face. All we have to do is give them total control of the country and all of our money and everything will be okay. As fast as Obama is moving toward those goals the complexion of mini-market video should start changing any day now.
