Gangs in Augusta?

Yeah, so this is why when we move next year, we’re not going to live in Richmond County if we can help it.

The first robbery happened around midnight at Madison on the Green Apartments, on River Ridge Drive. The second was at Ramblewood Apartments on Center West Parkway. The last robbery happened at Helena Woods Apartments on Alexander Drive, around 3:30 Tuesday morning.


People who live here say this is a quiet neighborhood, not the place you normally hear of robberies. They say that’s why they are worried. Authorities say during one of the robberies a suspect told a victim that he was robbing her to get in to a gang. That’s one of the reasons they’re taking these crimes very seriously.

Makes me real happy to be living in an apartment, I tell you what…
