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.”
