A North Augusta man who was trying to buy crack cocaine on credit was arrested at a local bank after claiming drug dealers were forcing him to withdraw money to pay them.

The man, Andrew Nicholas Glisson, of the 400 block of West Terrace, passed a note to a bank teller at Fifth Third Bank in North Augusta, advising her to call police around 12:45 p.m. Friday, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

Deputies were dispatched to the bank where they found Mr. Glisson standing at the counter and two youths sitting nearby in chairs. Mr. Glisson told police that the two juveniles held him at gunpoint and ordered him to get money from the bank.

Deputies later determined that Mr. Glisson had been purchasing crack on credit from the young men, and he was to pay them both $100 each for the drugs.

Mr. Glisson later told police he thought he could get out of paying them by getting the two youths arrested.

He was charged with false report of a crime.
