(Norcross, Ga., May 15, 2024) – A Peachtree Corners man is under arrest following an armed robbery of a U-Haul truck.

On April 21, at around 4:00 a.m., officers assigned to the West Precinct were dispatched to a call in reference to an armed robbery call at 6218 Dawson Blvd in unincorporated Norcross. Officers met with the victim who stated that an unknown male approached him wearing a mask and holding a firearm. The victim said that the suspect threatened to shoot him if he did not give him his possessions, including the U-Haul truck that he was driving. Following the crime, the suspect is seen fleeing the parking lot towards Jimmy Carter Blvd. Because his cell phone was stolen in the robbery, the victim flagged down a passerby to call 911.

The following day, officers utilized FLOCK cameras to locate the stolen U-Haul at a convenience store on Peachtree Corners Circle in Peachtree Corners. Officers descended upon the suspect and another passenger and took them into custody at around 12:15 a.m. Inside the vehicle, officers located items of evidence from the initial incident.

Tyler Xavier Harrison (age 30, Peachtree Corners) was arrested and charged with Armed Robbery, Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of Certain Crimes, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Methamphetamine, and driving on a suspended license. He was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail. The other person originally detained was not charged.

The Gwinnett County Police Department remains committed to investigating crimes and securing criminal charges against those responsible.
