The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office:
Two arrested at Evans apartment
Columbia County sheriff's deputies arrested an Augusta man and an Evans woman Tuesday night after being called to an armed robbery at an Evans apartment complex.
Cordero Giovanni Anfield, 18, of the 2200 block of Walden Drive, was charged with armed robbery of a residence with a gun, burglary and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, said personnel at the Columbia County Detention Center. He is being held without bond.
Stephanie L. Johnson, 20, of the 400 block of Old Evans Road, where the robbery occurred, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and was released Wednesday from the detention center on $7,600 bond, jailers said.
Johnson is not believed to be linked to the robbery, but drugs were found in the apartment, sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris said.
A neighbor told deputies she saw three men, one with his face covered by a bandana and carrying a handgun, knocking on Johnson's door.
One man kicked the door in, and all three entered the apartment.
Augusta man charged in pistol theft from car
An Augusta man was arrested Monday night on charges of breaking into a co-worker's car, stealing his gun and trying to elude deputies.
Kenneth Delmous Stewart, 18, of the 300 block of Chatham Road, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, obstruction or hindering of a law enforcement officer, entering a vehicle and theft by taking.
He is being held without bond at the Columbia County Detention Center.
A co-worker at WingStop in West Town shopping center in Martinez called police after he discovered a broken window on the front left door of his 1998 Ford Explorer.
The co-worker told deputies that he saw a satchel with a hammer and screwdriver near the building before his car was entered and later noticed the bag missing and Stewart nursing an injured left index finger after the window was broken.
Six deputies and a police dog flushed Stewart from a hiding place near a window-tinting business and tackled him as he fled near the Kmart garden center.
Deputies found a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber pistol in Stewart's pocket. He was taken to University Hospital for treatment of his hand before being taken to jail.
