Local Update - July 31, 2007

Nightclub's Future Uncertain
The nightclub Super C's could be no more if Sheriff Ronnie Strength has his way.
Monday, the Sheriff asked Augusta Commissioners to revoke the club's license.
He says officers have been called to the club more than 40 times recently.
The latest incident was for a shooting on the dance floor that killed 18 year old Stedmund Fryer.
Next Tuesday, Commissioners will take a vote on whether or not to shut it down.

Father and Son Sought
This morning, deputies are looking for a father and son team who they say helped a teenager break into a local clothing store on Wrightsboro Road.
Investigators say Jordash Tanksley and his father Clarence will be charged in this crime.
Deputies also say a 14 year-old boy was involved.
He was shot during the crime, and investigators say he will be tried as an adult.

Augusta Attorney Out on Bond
An Augusta attorney is on the other side of the law.
Monday, 49 year-old William Key pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
Key is accused of falsifying loan documents to make money on a fictitious home sale.

Robbery Suspect Arrested
An Edgefield man is in jail this morning, accused of a strong arm robbery.
Police say Dennis Key grabbed money out of a cash register at S & S truck stop on Edgefield Road in North Augusta Monday morning.
Key is being held at the Aiken County Jail.

Super Inn Warnings
Residents at the Augusta Super Inn are still living there, despite some serious warnings.
The Richmond County Health Department posted signs closing 99 rooms, but the tenants still had a key.
More than 50 rooms still have code problems, even after some work.
The health department says they're giving the motel until the 6th to get the work done.
