The following Dacula and Buford incidents were recently investigated by the Gwinnett County Police Department:
PURSE SNATCHED: A 71-year-old Sugar Hill woman was placing groceries inside her vehicle at the Publix on Cumming Highway on the evening of April 4 when a tan sport utility vehicle struck her shopping cart. According to the woman, a male inside the SUV then reached out and grabbed her purse before rapidly driving away and turning onto Suwanee Dam Road. One witness to the incident said the suspect vehicle had a white decal on the back of the truck which had the name of a mechanic shop. The witness said the decal had an image of two wrenches in a crossed position similar to that of the crossed bones in the skull and crossed bones symbol. A Publix manager informed police the store does not have surveillance cameras in the parking lot.
An officer checked the home and did not find any unlocked doors or windows, but did see pry marks on the frame of the basement door. Police, however, did not find any indication that anyone had actually made entry to the Green Farm Trail home. The resident said she immediately called police upon hearing the noise and did not attempt to look outside and see the person attempting to make entry to the home.
