On May 16, an officer was dispatched to investigate a burglary at a cafe in the 1600 block of Buford Highway. The business owner indicated someone broke the glass front door, entered the business and removed the cash register. The register contained approximately $200 in cash. The theft is believed to have occurred between 8 p.m. on May 15 and 8:30 a.m. on May 16. There was no surveillance video of the incident and the business was not equipped with an alarm.
Later that morning, another officer responded to a Commerce Drive car wash after the owner discovered a utility room had been entered and copper wire stolen. Entry, the report stated, was made by kicking open the utility room door. A shoe print was visible on the door.
Though the car wash did not have video surveillance of the incident, police believe cameras at a nearby business may have captured a brief view of any vehicle used by the burglar or burglars as it entered or left the car wash property.
Also on the morning of May 16, Gwinnett County Police were called to another Buford Highway business. The glass front door of the vitamin and supplement shop had been smashed and the cash inset drawer of the cash register had been thrown to the floor. The store policy, the owner told police, is to leave the register open with only change inside. All other money is placed in a safe, which was undisturbed. The incident happened sometime between 7:30 p.m. on May 15 and 8 a.m. on May 16.
