At least three Buford businesses were burglarized during the overnight hours of May 15 according to Gwinnett County Police.
The officer noted extensive damage including a damaged electrical box, cut power cables, damaged breaker/junction boxes and cut wiring. The owner estimated it will cost $10,000 to repair the damage. The burglary, according to the owner, took place between 6 p.m. on May 15 and 10:30 a.m. on May 16.
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.
