Updated: Security Guard Murder

WNRR Augusta – (RCSO Release)

This morning the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the murder of a security guard at CMC Recycling, 1890 Old Savannah Road.  The guard, whose name is not yet being released was shot.  We cannot give any details about where he was shot or how many times.  The suspect(s) removed a #1 bale of copper.  A photo of a similar bale is attached.  In the photos, please note that there is one bale on top of another bale.  The investigation reveals that the suspect(s) were very familiar with the business. 

We are asking anyone who may have been out after 4AM this morning to call if they may have seen a bale similar to this in the back of a truck.  It is possible that the suspect(s) will break the bale down and sell the copper in smaller amounts.  This is all the information we can provide at this time.


Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 706-821-1080 or the tip line at 1-866-939-5050.  We will update you when more information is available.
