Geoffrey Jimenez, 27, of the 2200 block of Wheeless Road, is charged with one count of burglary, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Alton Creech.

Mr. Jimenez was fired from Wild Wing about a month ago after he was caught stealing money from the store, Investigator Creech said.

Supervisors did not press charges against Mr. Jimenez at the time, choosing instead to fire him.

Investigators believe he returned to the restaurant about 4:19 a.m. July 4. He turned off the building’s alarm off and covered up a security camera, the report said, then robbed the safe.

They should probably fire the current manager who didn't change the alarm codes or safe combo after the previous manager was fired for theft.

Two million sperm cells and HE was the fastest swimmer? He's not much brighter than the counterfeiter who returned a printer to Target because it was jammed.....Jammed with one of his pages of counterfeit money and he had given them his name and address for the refund! What is it with Augusta and DUMB criminals?

I guess we need to be glad they are dumb. It makes for easier apprehension. Nice thought, cparker, but what do you mean by it, especially the no address?

KSL, Wheeless Road is in

KSL, Wheeless Road is in "disreputable" South Augusta, the poor side of town. Of course, some of the best citizens of Richmond County live on that road, or on roads that feed into it, but heck, HillGuy is too snooty to have a clue about that. The fact that there are also lots of poor people and genuine loser lowlifes also living in that area means everyone with 30906 in their home address automatically gets painted with the same sorry brush.

Exactly. Retired state

Exactly. Retired state representative Ben Allen lives between Wheeless Road and Golden Camp Roads. Calvin Holland the commissioner for that area does, too. Many retired military men live there or have died there and their widows moved on to safer locales. Unfortunately, it is also the locale of many murders, drug-trafficking and other things that go with it. I used to live in the area. When all the police officers moved out of the area, i knew it was past time to move.
