Gwinnett County police are searching for a man who broke into cars at three different gyms and spent hundreds of dollars on victims’ credit cards.
In each case, the suspect took victims’ credit cards from their cars, which were parked outside of gyms, and used those cards to purchase gift cards, according to police.
The suspect broke into a car parked outside the Planet Fitness on Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth on June 6, taking the victim’s credit card. The suspect then charged at least $250 at a nearby RaceTrac.
The second theft occurred on June 8, when the suspect allegedly broke into a car parked at the Crunch Fitness on Scenic Highway in Snellville. The suspect used that victim’s card to spend more than $500 at a Walmart on Lawrenceville Highwy.
The suspect struck again on June 8, allegedly breaking into a vehicle parked at Crossfit PPG on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Peachtree Corners. The suspect tried to charge $2,000 to that victim’s card at the same Walmart involved in the June 8 theft, but was unsuccessful.
Police describe the man as having a beard and a tattoo on his left forearm. He has been seen driving a white U-Haul pickup truck.
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.
