Gwinnett police have obtained a warrant for Rowland on one count of entering auto with intent to commit a theft.

According to the initial investigation, Rowland and another person followed the victim Feb. 4 from a bank in Doraville, where he had made a large withdrawal. The man parked at the Forum, an office building in Peachtree Corners that is home to a variety of professional services businesses like real estate agencies and law firms.

A witness who saw the suspects pull up next to the victim’s car in a white Ford F-150 thought they looked suspicious and took video of the incident, Flynn said. Rowland can be seen smashing a window of the victim’s car and reaching inside to take the money, Flynn said.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Gwinnett police department at 770-513-5300. Anonymous tips can be made through Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404-577-8477 or by visiting www.stopcrimeATL.com.
