March 5, 2007

An armed robber hit a credit union on the west side of Augusta this morning.

It happened around 9:25 at the Georgia Telco Credit Union. That's in the 1300 block of Augusta West Parkway.

The suspect is described as slender, 5' 10", 150-155 pounds. He was last seen wearing a light grey colored hoodie and thin dark colored ski-type mask. The suspect was armed with a chrome colored revolver.

Deputies were looking in the back of the building for the robber, who ran towards that area.
