Cops: Burglars break into Gwinnett home, steal PlayStation, iPhone

Four men broke into a Snellville home and stole $1,900 worth of items, including a PlayStation 4, Gwinnett County police said.

Surveillance cameras at the victim’s home captured much of the Jan. 4 break-in. A man holding a handgun entered the Broxton Lane home through a window around 9 a.m., police said. That man searched the home while holding the gun to ensure nobody was home before he opened a back door, allowing three more men inside, according to police.

The quartet of burglars took the PlayStation, an iPhone 6, a Microsoft tablet and two range bags, according to police. They left the home by 2:30 p.m.

The first suspect had an “average build” and stood about 5 foot 9 inches, wearing a dark winter coat, white hoodie and jeans. A second suspect was about 6 feet tall with a slim build wearing a light-colored button-up coat, ark hoodie, jeans and a skullcap. The third suspect is a man with a slim build standing about 6 foot 2 inches and was wearing a light-colored hoodie, skinny pants, and something that may have been either a headlamp or a bandanna. The fourth suspect is a man standing 5 foot 7 inches tall with a slim build and was wearing a Nike Air hoodie reading “Just Do It” and a light-colored beanie.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. Crime Stoppers tips may be rewarded with up to $2,000 if they lead to an arrest or indictment.
