AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) - The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after what appears to be pills were found in a tea container at a restaurant.
Deputies were dispatched to the same Jimmy John's on Agerton Lane just five days apart on Oct. 31 and Nov. 4 after employees and restaurant patrons found pills at the bottom of the tea container.
Both times, employees or patrons said the tea tasted a little off. On the Oct. 31 incident, patrons told employees they would be going to the hospital after they drank the tea.
In the Nov. 4 incident, an employee told deputies he believed the pills in question were ecstasy pills.
The sheriff's office continues to investigate.
