The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who they say stole several cases of beer from a Hephzibah gas station earlier this month.
About 1:30 p.m. Feb. 3, the suspect, described as a black man wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt and black pants, entered the Sprint Gas Station at 2480 Crosscreek Road and left with two 30-packs of beer that he didn’t pay for, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
