Taco Bell Crime of the Week!
Finally, something happening in Augusta, Georgia other than discrimination at the Masters:
Richmond County authorities are investigating two armed robberies that occurred about the same time Saturday night.
In the first, a man with a gun robbed Taco Bell at 3222 Wrightsboro Road about 9:20 p.m., according to a Richmond County sheriff's report. The robber walked in while talking on a cellular phone, and he continued to hold the phone to his head as he ordered his food. When an employee opened a cash register to give the man change, the man showed the employee a black handgun and demanded money.
The robber took about $142 and fled on foot. A blue jacket and white hat with a black crown, similar to those the robber was wearing, were found at the railroad tracks on Sibley Road near Gordon Highway.
