An Evans man was arrested early Saturday after allegedly breaking into a vehicle in downtown Augusta.

James Hardie Harris, 39, of Wood Hill Circle, was detained about 4:20 a.m. after witnesses say he broke into at least one vehicle near Ninth and Broad streets, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

When deputies arrived on scene, a 27-year-old woman said that her cellphone and debit card had been removed from her car. At that point, the woman traced her phone and told deputies it should be near Seventh and Ellis streets.

When deputies got to the corner of Seventh and Ellis streets, they observed Harris walking and could hear a phone ringing from his pocket.

Deputies confirmed it was the victim’s cellphone, at which point Harris claimed he found it on a street downtown. Officers then found three other cellphones in Harris’ possession, along with the victim’s credit card.

Harris has been charged with entering a vehicle to commit a theft.

When it comes to facts, there

When it comes to facts, there was some missing as I read somewhere else. Nevertheless, it was good. Have a look at the patchwork rugs of cowhide which is one of the most lavish decorations, which are available at low price.
