Gwinnett police seek burglary crew suspected of stealing from many area communities

Gwinnett Police detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying three burglars that have vandalized and stolen from multiple counties and jurisdictions since last month. The crew is responsible for burglaries in Gwinnett County, Snellville, Lilburn, Dekalb County, Norcross, Brookhaven and Chamblee. They use a crowbar to pry open doors or to smash glass to gain entry.

On June 27 into June 28 this crew burglarized a cell phone store in unincorporated Duluth, steeling more than $4600 worth of cell phones, $3800 in cash, took items with personal information of the owner, and caused hundreds of dollars worth of damage. On June 12, this crew began the crime spree at 1.40 a.m. at a business in unincorporated Norcross, hitting another one a few minutes later a few blocks away and yet a third in Atlanta before 2:30 a.m. They stole more than $76,000 in cash and property and caused almost $2,000 worth of damage in just one night. They are in and out of each business within one to three minutes. In each instance, the suspects leave their vehicle in very close proximity to their point of entry. They continue to use the same vehicle described as a gray/silver or light blue 2000’s model BMW 4-door sedan.
