AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Richmond County Sheriff's Office wants your help in identifying two men sought for questioning in connection to some recent crimes.

The manager of Rhinehart's Oyster Bar on Washington Road said he had closed the store on the evening of May 31 and was leaving. When he locked the door, he says he was approached from behind by an unknown black male wearing a camouflage sweatshirt and a mask.

The man is said to be 5'10, weighs about 150 pounds and was armed with a pump shotgun. After a physical struggle, the man was able to get away with the victim's wallet.

Approximately 42 minutes after the robbery, the same card was used at an ATM at SRP Federal Credit Union on the 2000 block of Tobacco Road. There were five unsuccessful attempts with the card.

Later that morning between 2 and 3 a.m., someone tried to use the card on the 3000 and 2000 blocks of Peach Orchard Road.

Around 11:45 a.m., this same credit card was attempted to be used on the 3000 block of Deans Bridge Road at a gas station. A video from the gas station shows two black males inside the store at the time the card was used, but they are not shown using the card on tape.
