Victim Repeatedly Assaulted during Armed Robbery at Local Convenience Store
(Snellville, Georgia) The Gwinnett County Police Department Robbery Unit needs the public’s help in identifying the suspect in a recent armed robbery. On Thursday, November 16, a black male dressed in a tan coat, gray and black hoodie, black gloves, dark blue pants, black shoes, carrying a brown pack walked into the Exxon Gas Station at 2100 Killian Hill Road in unincorporated Snellville. The male forced his way into the rear counter area, placed a black semi-automatic handgun to the employee’s head, and demanded the employee open the registers. The employee told the responding officer that the suspect struck him multiple times in the back of the head with the handgun. After complying with the suspect’s commands, the employee said that the suspect stole several thousand dollars. He also stole approximately 7 unopened packs of scratch off Georgia Lottery Tickets and cigarettes.
The lead detective contacted the Georgia Lottery and provided them with the stolen pack numbers. The Georgia Lottery Investigators gave him several locations that the tickets from the packs were cashed in. Three of the transactions took place on the same day as the armed robbery.
On November 16 at around 4pm, a black male in a camouflage jacket cashed some of the stolen lottery tickets at the Kroger at 3050 Five Forks Trickum Road in unincorporated Lilburn.
On November 16, three suspects cashed in several more of the stolen lottery tickets at the Exxon convenience store at 3585 Lee Road in unincorporated Snellville.
And on November 16, at about 6:30pm, two suspects cashed in a couple more of the stolen lottery tickets at the Quik Trip at 2008 Scenic Highway in Snellville. The suspects arrived in a silver or grey 4-door Pontiac passenger car.
