AUGUSTA, Ga.---Richmond County Deputies arrested two men Thursday night in connection with a carjacking and Credit Union robbery at 1451 Marvin Griffin Road.

Deputies arrested Calvin Lee Stevenson of Hephzibah and charged him with hijacking motor vehicle, armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Deputies also arrested Andre Lewis of Augusta Thursday night and charged him with armed robbery.

Richmond County Investigators say both men are being held without bond at the Richmond County Jail.

The carjacking happened around 11:55 a.m. Thursday on the 3300 block of Mike Padgett Highway.

Deputies say then at about 12:08 p.m., the suspects used that stolen car to rob the Richmond Community Federal Credit Union at 1451 Marvin Griffin Road.

One suspect held a guard hostage with a shotgun, while two others used handguns to rob the credit union.

Deputies say the suspect then fled in the stolen Towncar to two waiting vehicles on Winesap Way.

The suspects left the carjacked vehicle at an abandoned house and and left in their own vehicles, a white Toyota Corolla and a white Jeep Cherokee.

Richmond County Deputies say then four EZ-Go employees, leaving the plant for lunch, witnessed the suspects fleeing and were able to follow them and get descriptions of the Corolla and Cherokee.

Deputies then were able to spot the Corolla the 4200 block of White Pines Road, and took 24 year old Andre Lewis into custody.

Another unit spotted the Cherokee on White Pines Road and took the driver, 24-year old Calvin Stephenson, into custody.

Two passengers fled from the Cherokee, but have since been identified as Drew Jamal Pollard and Jeremiah Jerome Garrett.

Richmond County Deputies are looking for 25 year old Drew Jamal Pollard of Augusta and 20-year old Jeremiah Jerome Garrett of Augusta as of Thursday night.

Deputies say Pollard and Garrett are both wanted on charges of hijacking motor vehicle, armed robbery, kidnapping, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Pollard and Garrett are asked to call the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at 706-821-1080.
