4 MEN CHARGED FOR 5 ARMED ROBBERIES IN AUGUSTA AREA

The federal grand jury sitting in Savannah, Georgia has returned an indictment against Andrew Cornelius Walker, 32, of Augusta, Georgia, Devon Mitchell Saxton, 26, of Augusta, Georgia, Oscar M. Bwanali, 26, of Atlanta, Georgia, and Joey Leon Greene, Jr., 28, of Charlotte, North Carolina, charging them for the armed robberies of four businesses in Augusta, Georgia, as well as two robberies of armored cars in Columbia County, Georgia and Atlanta, Georgia. Walker, Saxton, and Bwanali are also charged with brandishing firearms during these robberies.

The indictment charges that the defendants conspired to commit armed robberies at the following locations:
  • Chili’s Restaurant at 273 Robert C. Daniel Parkway, Augusta, Georgia on August 1, 2009;
  • Check Exchange at 3215 Wrightsboro Road, Augusta, Georgia on September 3, 2009;
  • Columbia Check Cashing at 5226 Wrightsboro Road, Grovetown, Georgia on December 9, 2009;
  • Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant at 499 Bobby Jones Expressway, Augusta, Georgia on February 1, 2010;
  • Garda Cash Logistics armored car in Atlanta, Georgia on September 14, 2010; and,
  • Loomis armored car in Columbia County, Georgia on August 9, 2011.
United States Attorney Edward J. Tarver stated, “The crimes alleged in this indictment are hideous acts of violence committed against the entire community. This scourge cannot be allowed in today’s society.

When individuals commit outrageous acts that put the safety of others at risk, they must be prosecuted to the fullest extent that the law allows. The United States Attorney’s Office has no higher priority than protecting the American people.”

The conspiracies charged in the indictment, as well as each robbery, carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. For the firearms charges, Walker, Saxton, and Bwanali face a minimum of 7 years of incarceration for the first conviction (consecutive to any other sentence imposed) and then a minimum of 25 years of incarceration for each additional conviction on a firearms charge.

United States Attorney Edward J. Tarver stressed that an indictment is only an accusation and is not evidence of guilt. The defendants are entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Tarver praised the joint efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office which led to the indictment. The government is represented in this case by Assistant United States Attorney Patricia G. Rhodes.

  4. I've known ACW all of his life, and I DON'T BELIEVE these charges are true. He's not that type of person, was not raised to be that type of person, and hopefully will be proven innocent. Andy, I will keep you, and the situation you're now in, in my prayers!

    1. You are right. I went to school with 2 of the men and that is, well was not their character AT ALL, Talking about squares, but they were always super cool. But them folks ain't indicting nobody without some hard evidence. People always say that's not someones character, you will NEVER know the extent of someones character, hell you don't even know the extent of your own character for that matter. I say I will never kill anyone cause that's not in me, but if it comes down to it and its your life or mine, please believe I'm gonna try and go out in the blades of glory. Don't mean to rant on your comment lol, ppl are just something else. Scared to face the facts.

    1. looks to me like they just slapped a bunch of random "open" 211's on these guys... I mean the FBI and local Police are just people to... they have quotas, and deadlines... and if armed robbery isnt solved outright they usually just try to slap in on someone who got caught doin something semi similar... and then after years and years waiting to go to court and a public defender who is working more against you than for you the defendant will usually cop a plea and the state can finally "close" the case and go and stroke each other off while listening to the media praise them.... cops are just as much criminals as anyone... they are just people... they sin as much as the next man... except they get away with it b/c all the ignorant brainwashed morons who live in this country...

      and i thought they related the Howell Mill Garda Armored Truck Robbery to the same crew who killed the Garda truck guard in Toco Hills... Stacey Lamont Dooley... they have a surveillance photo of the perp.. So all yall who claim to know the guys will know if its them or not right? they got several angles as well... lemme know
