Dippin' Dots robbed by gunman

  • Follow Latest News

The Dippin’ Dots at 4108 Windsor Spring Road was robbed by a gunman Friday night, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s report.

An employee said a man entered the business about 9 p.m. and placed an order. As the employee rang up the order, the man lifted his shirt and displayed a silver handgun in the waist of his jeans. He then told the employee: “This is a robbery. Don’t cause a scene. I’ll shoot you.”

The employee handed over money from the register and the man left in a white, four-door Kia Rio driven by another person. They drove west on Tobacco Road.

The robber is described as black, 5 feet 8 inches or 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighting 190 pounds with short black hair and bushy eyebrows. He was wearing an orange shirt, blue jeans and a black do-rag with holes in it.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (706) 821-1080.

It was only a matter of time

It was only a matter of time for that place. Note to business owners: Don't build nice new stores in south Augusta until they clean up the trash!

I wonder why they don't have

I wonder why they don't have one of those 100 dollar video systems? Oh well I guess if we loose a clerk it is easier to replace than putting out a hundred for a useless video camera, isn't it?

Rabid vermin need to be put

Rabid vermin need to be put down. Maybe if some business owners or managers had weapons, and leveled the playing field, some of this foolishness would stop.

I think it's sad that you

I think it's sad that you can't have a business anywhere,since they did that extension to the highway over there by Robert C.Daniel,they have an easier way to rob and get away!All that robbing did'nt start till then,but that's still no excuse for it.You can't even go out at night,or the daytime because one of these fools are out.and you wonder why business's don't want to come to Augusta,or if they did they wish they had'nt!,I got an idea,let's everybody leave and close all the stores and everything and make Augusta a ghost town,put a wall up so they can't get into Columbia County,South Ca,and leave them here to rob each other.just open the jails and let them out after we leave,C'mon let's give it a try!I'll take to the Comish's,All in favor!

I wonder if a certain segment

I wonder if a certain segment of the population will ever take responsibility for themselves and start respecting the rights and property of other Americans and stop committing crimes and increasing their already skewed incarceration statistics?

Hmmmmm!I wonder what that

Hmmmmm!I wonder what that means?Are you speaking of the people of the more darker complexion,if you read the NEW STATISTICS,they are'nt the only one's!That was a good way of saying it!I might not agree with what you say,but you have the right to say it just like I do!Everybody is in the same boat now,noone is in the cruise ship anymore if it is it's just a few!Are you in the BIG BOAT?Ode?Ummmmhhh!Just asking!

New statistics? All I need

New statistics? All I need to see is on the TV everynight. You can throw up the old "white people commit crimes too" statement all you want, but the reality is that almost every crime in this area is committed by an African American male, and more often than not, against another African American, this race/community is killing itself and giving ammunition to bigoted whites every day. You want to know why we still have racism? why the county commission is commonly divided along racial lines, why women(and not only white women) hold their purses closer when they see a young black male? Its because of this, its a problem that white folk, politicians and preachers can't fix, this is a parenting issue, this is an issue with black culture (thug life) it is up to the black community to fix this, and not by building another church, stop preaching and start DOING! Teach your children to start living by the same laws and values as everyone else, its not being a sellout, its being a member of society, a contributing member of society.

Yes I know that there are

Yes I know that there are many black law abiding, contributing members of society, but the small minded ones don't diffentiate between thugs and CEO's, they think Black is as Black does. This affects every black citizen regardless of social status, fix this problem and they will have to change or be exposed for the bigots they are, just don't blame them when they say I told you so when a black face is on the news after committing another crime in Augusta, its all they know.
