Gwinnett County police searching for burglary suspects

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County police are searching for two men caught on tape attempting to break into an apartment.

On Oct. 28 around 2:15 p.m., a witness in the 3369 building of Conservatory Apartments on Peachtree Corners Circle heard noises.

When she looked out, she saw a man attempting to break into her neighbor's apartment with a crowbar and another man who appeared to be acting as a lookout.

Police said the two men were spooked by an approaching vehicle and fled the scene. The witness then went to the leasing office and told the staff what she saw.

A representative of the leasing office went to inspect the apartment door and found that the men had returned and had succeeded in entering the apartment.

The staff member used his cell phone to record one of the men.

When the suspect realized he was being recorded, police said he ran through the apartment and was not seen again.

Nothing was actually taken from the apartment, according to police.

Police said the man captured on video matches the description of a burglary suspect from another case in the area.

If you know who the man is, call detectives at 770-513-5300.
