Deputies seek suspected beer thief

HEPHZIBAH, GA (WFXG) - Richmond County deputies are looking for a man they say stole beer from a store in Hephzibah.

The man entered the Sprint gas station located at 2480 Crosscreek Rd. at about 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 3, deputies said. He took one 30-pack of Bud Light beer and one 30-pack of Busch beer and left the store without paying.

Neighbors Fox 54 spoke to said they aren't worried and consider the area safe.

Elsie Dean Hall said, "Nobody has ever really bothered me over there. It's real peaceful out here."

Deputies believe the same man has stolen beer two other times at the same store.

Anyone with information on the identity of the man in the attached photos can contact Investigator Bert Gates with the Richmond County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division at 706-821-1059 or any on-duty investigator at 706-821-1020.
