West Augusta neighbors on edge after burglaries

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - "You can't come to this neighborhood and something happen and somebody not take notice at some point," said Kelly Ray, a resident of West Augusta.

And take notice she did, after her neighbor's house was burglarized on Sunday morning.

"Between 10:00 and 10:45, someone robbed them across the street," said Ray.

She was in her kitchen when she looked out her window and saw a vehicle in the driveway she had never seen before.

"I noticed a car there but didn't think anything of it because they're moving," said Ray. "A lot of people have been coming and helping. So it didn't really seem out of the ordinary'

An incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff's Office said the thieves most likely got in a side door of the Moxley residence, and managed to get away with thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, and a 42 inch HDTV. Neighbors and investigators said a green-blue 2000s model Pontiac GrandAm, could be connected to the burglary.

"Well, be on the lookout for that car," urged Ray. "Share the information within your county. Say somebody drives through your neighborhood in a car with that description you can be alert, keep your doors locked, keep an eye on your children.'
