Police seek suspect in Gwinnett home burglaries

Posted: Updated:
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -

Gwinnett police have arrested one man and detectives want to identify two more in a series of home burglaries in the county.

The robberies took place in Dacula, Buford and Lawrenceville beginning earlier this month.

Police released video that shows the suspects and their vehicle at one of the homes that was targeted.

Authorities say the burgers arrived in a green GMC Jimmy and worked quickly once they determined no one was at home.

Gwinnett County Cpl. Edwin Ritter said that the suspects would knock on the door of a home several times. If they didn't get an answer, one of the men would kick open the door. They then loaded up the vehicle with stolen items.

Investigators linked the burglars to seven break-ins and believe they're responsible for more. With a 21-year-old suspect under arrest, Gwinnett authorities continue to search for two others. One is thought to have severely cut himself at one of the locations and likely required medical attention, Ritter said.

Police arrested the first suspect after spotting a vehicle that matched the SUV.
