Gwinnett County and Lilburn police are searching for three men who allegedly broke into homes and stole residents’ belongings.

The first burglary occurred around 9 a.m. on July 18. The three men were seen on home surveillance footage breaking into a home on E. Fork Shady Drive outside Lilburn city limits. The men entered through a broken window and took multiple unspecified items, police said.


A neighbor alerted police to the burglary; the home’s occupants were away on vacation at the time of the break-in, according to a police report.

One of the suspects was wearing a white mask during the July 18 burglary. The other had dreadlocks, glasses and a T-shirt reading “haters gonna hate.”

The next burglary occurred the following day, July 19, in the city of Lilburn. After that burglary, the suspects left in a “newer model gray Nissan Sentra.”

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.
