WORK VAN THEFT CAUGHT ON VIDEO: An employee of a Buford business saw the man who reportedly stole a van out of the parking lot of a Buford business, but initially thought it was a coworker. The employee said he parked the company vehicle at the rear of the Mall of Georgia Boulevard building on May 13 just after 11 a.m. The employee admitted leaving the doors unlocked and the key inside the vehicle while he went inside. He saw a man get into the vehicle and drive away, but did not realize the van had been stolen until he saw the employee he had mistaken for the driver inside the business. Surveillance footage showed a white male, approximately 5-foot-6 and weighing 160-180 pounds enter the vehicle. The suspect was wearing a light blue polo shirt similar to what the employee was wearing. The van, a 2005 Ford Econoline which had the name of the company printed on the side of the vehicle, contained approximately $1,000 worth of tools. The van itself has an estimated value of $10,000.
