Original, 02/02/2018: (Lilburn, Georgia) A Gwinnett County Police Department detective believes that a suspect in a recent burglary may be the same suspect in a series of armed robberies.
On Friday, January 12 at around 12:40am, a suspect is seen on surveillance breaking into the Best 4 Less at 115 Harmony Grove Road in unincorporated Lilburn. Prior to the burglary, the suspect is seen on surveillance peering into the front door. He grabs some rocks from near the dumpster and eventually throws the rock through the glass. After the glass is broken out, the suspect reaches inside, unlocks the door and walks inside. After attempting to steal the money from a secure area, the suspect is seen fleeing the location before responding officers arrive.
Fortunately, no merchandise or cash was stolen.
The suspect is described as a white male, 6-00 to 6-03, 160-170 lbs., wearing a camouflage jacket and hat, black and white bandana, blue jeans, and brown boots.
The suspect description in this case matches the suspect descriptions in a series of pharmacy robberies in the Snellville, Lilburn, and Loganville areas. (18-002590, 18-005269, 18-007020)
