A 42-year-old Gracewood man was taken into custody on charges he stole candy, cigarettes and a soda from an Augusta gas station and resisted arrest Saturday morning.

A Richmond County sheriff’s report states that Curtis William Life, of 5472 Woodland Road, Gracewood, was arrested about 8 a.m. at the Kangaroo Gas station at 3479 Wrightsboro Road.

Officers responded to a call about a robbery and found Mr. Life sitting on a curb near the gas station with candy, soft drinks and cigarettes he claimed to have purchased.

A store employee told officers the man had threatened her and taken the items. When the officers tried to arrest Mr. Life, he refused to comply.

The officers had used pepper spray and a baton on Mr. Life, but he continued to resist arrest and tried to pull a pistol from an officer’s holster.

Mr. Life was finally handcuffed when additional officers arrived. A deputy’s body microphone, a pair of eyeglasses and a cell phone were damaged during the struggle.

Mr. Life was charged with robbery by intimidation, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, trying to take an officer’s weapon, interference with government property and criminal trespass.
