Bank holdup suspect from theft today at Regions Bank branch on Furys Ferry Road in Martinez.

The man entered the Regions Bank at 360 Furys Ferry Road at 12:50 p.m. and handed a teller a note demanding money, said Anthony Russo, the supervisory senior resident agent of the FBI’s Augusta field office.

The robber never produced a weapon.

He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot headed toward Riverwatch Parkway.

No one was injured in the robbery.

The robber was described as a white man in his late 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-8-inches to 5-foot-9-inches tall, wearing blue jeans, a hooded sweatshirt or work jacket, a white shirt with dark Greek letters ,and a dark stocking cap.

Heh, I was close to that one.

Heh, I was close to that one. I was in the liquor store across the street. The deputies took a hard look at me. The girl in the store, who has connections, told me a dye pack was not placed with the money? True?

Okay..up on my support the

Okay..up on my support the miltary podium. I don't think JustA was trying to be mean, but what he doesn't understand is that military retirement pay is 50% of BASE pay. Much of military pay comes from things such as housing allowances and so on. When you retire that's not part of the calculation. If you think retiring at 20 years is too easy, realize how we move umpteen times and fight in wars all over the world. I'm lucky enough to have a valued skill in demand, but many retire as infantrymen and work another 20 years in tough jobs. It's not all easy street. Hurrah, for all vets. What does this have to do with me being in the liquor store during the bank robbery...not much.

Once again Ispy4u, the "gimme gimme and I hate hard work crowd" does not discriminate. POS's come from all races. I bet you're excited about the description above.

"The robber was described as a white man" Of course he was white! I mean what else can you expect from these people?

That should have said regular JOB, not jobs. Lakeside's baseball team can use the proceeds from a charity bet.

Augusta Chronicle. Its clear

Augusta Chronicle. Its clear there is some reverse racism going on in the comment monitoring office. There was nothing in my post that was racist in any way. Ispy4u always states, "what is the white community going to do about this"? Wheres Converted, Lolajean, etc. On the contrary I simply stated that crooks have dont dicriminate. Whites and Blacks fall into this category. This explains a lot. RCR, Notreally, and Justus can say the exact same thing and not have their comments removed. Hey, Barney Fife in the comment monitoring office downtown, you are a joke. Stop playing favorites with that $10 an job of yours.

LoloJean, all discrimination

LoloJean, all discrimination is discrimination, none of it's reversed. Sometimes the abbreviation for Perfect Obama Supporter is reason to get a comment removed. There's a lot of variable qualifications for getting a comment removed, but in the best first amendment executions, mentioning them will get you censured. (I can't say any more without being banned)

Just Nuts4 aka: FUBU4 aka: Says:"This is another attempt by the AWM to put you know who in a bad light. Who's money do they keep in this so called bank? the non mimority media's money or the AWM money? you know who. I will tie myself to this bank and go on a hunger strike to show my disdain for this story and humanity. I will not stop until I fill this world with bile. Great country eh?"

I have great confidence that

I have great confidence that they will find this guy, because he doesn't fit in the "They all look alike" category! I don't know about those Greek letters. Can anyone educate the rest of us? Looks like "E" (Epsilon?) and "X". Aren't those the second and third letters of a fraternity, or is it a sorority? (Probably a fraternity since it's a man's sized sweater, wouldn't you say?)

OK everybody, lets help and

OK everybody, lets help and support this poor, good white boy. He has a good upbring and goes to church every day. He is loved by eveybody that knows him and give all his free time supporting the needy. He should not be caught or in prison. He was only doing this to get milk for his 4 children.

This is just a matter of U

This is just a matter of U know who trying to implicate this guy on U know what. The AWM is persecuting this guy before he is tried by a jury of U know who because the civil rights act precluded certain protected individuals from doing you know what. This guy should be presumed innocent and maybe his not was miscontrued as something it was not but was read and was misunderstood as U know what.

Of course he's a white male

Of course he's a white male in the description; if he had been any other race, there would be no racial categorization given. Can't admit anyone but whites commit crimes; that's not politically correct.

Lastly, there are no "moderators". These threads are monitored (reactively) by the advertising dept and are only here to generate revenue for the AC. There is no "noble motive".

The best way to show your displeasure is to print out a thread, send it to the advertisers who's ads you see on the page and ask :"Is this what you wish to be associated with?" (Notice the only advertisers on THIS thead is the AC itself.) Must be working, eh?
