A man attempted to rob two Quick Cash employees as they were leaving the business at closing on Nov. 2.

According to a North Augusta Public Safety incident report, the victims were leaving the business at 416 E. Martintown Road to deposit money at the bank. While in the parking lot, a man wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants jumped out from behind the garbage cans on the side of the building and asked, “Who got the money bags?”

One of the victims screamed, threw down the items she had and ran in the opposite direction. The other victim hit the panic button on her keys to cause her car alarm to go off.

When the alarm went off, the man ran behind the building and left in an SUV.

The victims were able to pick up the money bags and all money was accounted for, according to the report.

Attempts to find the robber and the driver of the SUV were unsuccessful.

Shoplifters stole a baby stroller from a display at Walmart on Nov. 2.

The complainant told North Augusta Public Safety that the women went to different departments and placed items in a shopping cart.

They then went to the hardware department and selected a pair of cutting shears and then used the shears to cut down a stroller from display and place it in the cart, according to an incident report.

Afterward, the women left the store without paying for the items. The reporting officer and the complainant stopped the women as they were trying to put the items into their vehicle.

Theresa Ashley Ryan, 26, of Blanche Road and Mary Deanna Gorman, 28, of Kennedy Drive were arrested and charged with shoplifting.
