An Augusta man and his girlfriend came home about 5:30 p.m. Friday to find two armed men inside his home.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s report, the male victim said that one of the men brandished a black handgun and the other a pearl-handled firearm at his home in the 3100 block of Mike Padgett Highway.

The men then took a black wallet containing $1,500, a brown and white puppy valued at $1,000 and a Dell laptop computer valued at $500.

They then fired two rounds in the direction of the male victim and fled on foot.

Carlos Sylvon Staley, 33, of Deans Bridge Road, was arrested after being found near the home with a weapon fitting the description of one of those used in the incident.

The computer and dog were found on Bell Drive and returned to the victim.

Police are still searching for the second suspect.

He was described as black, 18 to 24 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 160 pounds.

I hope the one that was

I hope the one that was caught will sing LOUD and let the police know who his accomplice is. Wish there were stricter laws to stop these outcasts from commiting crimes time and time again. Let 's face it - that is what's happening.
Merry Christmas to one and all that wish to agree.

I thought it was politically

I thought it was politically incorrect to identify criminals as black. How dare the Augusta Chronicle for this mistake. Al and Jessie will be on their way here to protest ASAP.

If they are black , what in the world is incorrect about identifying them as black. If they are white they would be identified as white.

He was described as black

He was described as black because it will aid in a potential capture of the suspect. Kind of an important factor.

I thought it was racist to

I thought it was racist to reference anyone who is black with committing a crime now days. It's supposedly the white establishment making it seem that way.
