AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tuesday night, Richmond County deputies arrested 23-year-old Joseph Andrew Thomas and charged him with the September 10th murder of Robert Lee Stone, Jr. at the Circle K on Gordon Hwy.

Around 7:30 p.m., investigators spotted Thomas on Haynie Drive, but he ran away when they approached him.

During the chase, deputies say Thomas threw a handgun onto the ground. He was caught after a short foot chase.

Thomas is also charged with robbing a cable installer on 2nd Ave., just hours before the murder of Mr. Stone.

The Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office is also seeking Thomas for another robbery involving a victim who was shot multiple times on August 20th.

Thomas is also wanted by Gwinett County for armed robbery and weapons charges.

Thomas is being held without bond at the Richmond County Jail.

He’s charged with murder, two counts of possession of a firearm during a crime, two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and armed robbery.
