  • Follow Latest News

A man has been arrested in connection with a home invasion and attempted armed robbery of a 63-year-old Hephzibah woman on Aug. 3.

According to Richmond County jail records, 24-year-old Quincy Dean was arrested on Wednesday and charged with criminal attempt armed robbery, burglary, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and false imprisonment.

A sheriff’s report states that at about 11:20 a.m. on Aug. 3, a man pointed a gun at the woman while she was in her backyard on the 3600 block of Gibralter Drive in Hephzibah. The man forced the woman back inside her house.

The man demanded that the woman give him money but the woman told him that she did not have any. The man forced the woman back into a bedroom and told her to stay there. The woman then called law enforcement on a telephone. The robber drove off in a silver vehicle.

Quincys' mama and daddy

Quincys' mama and daddy dosen't know it but he was about 5 minutes away from being an ex child. He was lucky/unlucky that he picked the right/wrong house to display his masculinity. I really think the time has come to allow home owners to install deadly traps for hoodlums because they have no fear of the law.

Does anyone notice a pattern

Does anyone notice a pattern here? Robbers/thieves from SC are coming across the river and doing crimes in GA, and GA POS's are going to SC. I say hang em all! Picking on a woman 63 yo's is masculilne? think not! Sissy perhaps, not so invincible. I dont believe the consequences are worth going to jail losing your life/future. Who will hire this thief? or want anything to do with his/her family? Apple doesn't fall too far from the trees.

States should create a

States should create a website like the sex offenders in the area, only make it for criminals and where they live. That will curb this insanity.

Police can't be everywhere.

Police can't be everywhere. The thugs outnumber them 10 to 1.

DISSSMAN - Instead of a trap

DISSSMAN - Instead of a trap for a hoodlum, I'll keep a shotgun and carry a .357 as back-up. If they're smart they'll lie face down on the ground until police arrive. Folks, it's not the policeman's job to be your personal body-guard. Take some personal responsibility! And in NO WAY am I blaming the victim.

bettyboop - law enforcement

bettyboop - law enforcement has failed the law abiding tax paying citizens? You are kidding right? Unless you are willing to pay more taxes so that a police officer can be assigned to every block in the county then law enforcement will be what it has always been since the beginning of law enforcement - reactionary. They can't be everywhere at the same time. And it is only the luck of the draw when they are there to witness and stop someone from breaking the law in most cases.

You are correct overburden.

You are correct overburden. Law enforcement does their jobs to the best the can. They catch these [filtered word]'s. Its when they get to sentencing where the system fails. They have no fear of incarceration, they gets slaps on the wrist most of the time, and if they do get a little time, its not punishment, its just a temporary loss of a little freedom which they don't mind. If we implemented the death penalty swiftly when needed, gave the criminals hard labor instead of cable tv and basketball, maybe it would be some sort of deterrant and they would have more room for the dangerous [filtered word]'s they keep letting go due to over crowding, like repeat offender thieves and drunk drivers, not to mention the money it would save tax payers!

You know, maybe with a little

You know, maybe with a little inventive police work we could stop a lot of hoodlums or put them on the right track. For instance if a police report has an older model car, flashy rims, and skinny tires and painted purple and yellow or any other drug dealer colors. then the police should stop each and everyone they come upon and have the driver and occupants layed out in the street and searched. And do it every block if you can. Alternatively if the police report states an individual with dark droopy pants and a tee shirt, stop every hoodlum they come contact with that fits that description. Same procedure as with the drug dealer car. The end result will be no one can go anywhere in the rust buckets because they are stopped all the time and no one wants to ride with them. Same with the droopy pants, they will be so tired of getting on the ground spreadeagled every five minutes, they will put on a pair of pants that fit. And guess what, every stop is justified because they fit the description of the wanted person. Bottom line is the police have to make the criminal wanna be and criminals uncomfortable if they want to control them.
