The arrest came during a solid stretch of breaks for deputies who are battling a rash of crime that’s claimed more than 50 lives since mid-April across the CSRA.

The crime outbreak has affected communities large and small on both sides of the Savannah River, but as the largest community, Augusta has been hit especially hard. Deputies have blamed gangs for many of the slayings, which have claimed the lives of several young men and teenagers.
