North Augusta authorities are searching for a man who robbed the Wachovia Bank branch on Georgia Avenue at West Buena Vista in North Augusta this afternoon.

A man wearing a red golf shirt with white stripes entered the store and demanded money from a teller, according to North Augusta Public Safety Detective Tim Thornton. He fled on foot behind the bank where investigators believe a driver in an older model Buick or Oldsmobile was waiting, Detective Thornton said.

A red dye pack embedded in the stolen money exploded as the suspect fled the scene. Investigators described the suspect as a black man in his forties. He stands somewhere between five-feet six inches and six-feet tall. No one was hurt in the robbery and the robber did not show a weapon.

It's the increase in crime in general. It's not inherent to NA. Let's hope they catch them. They should make a dye pack that acts like a tazer. . . . Zap! . . . your done.

I, for one, am glad that these idiots don't think about the dye packs. Too bad the dye packs don't have GPS transmitters in them... wouldn't it be nice to just show up at the crooks house while he's counting "his" money?

lol boog. Apparently bank

lol boog.
Apparently bank teller's are just told as policy, *give them whatever they want* whether they show a weapon or not. Almost all of the banks robbed anymore, it is only with a note written on paper, or the robber just saying, *give me all your money*. Sigh.. Until banks and stores can come up with some kind of method of preventing it, they will continue. This is just the beginning of what will clearly become much, much worse!
No one was hurt Mike, Big O's comment was just a typical response for him.
