The suspect tried to take money from “a secure area,” but was unsuccessful, police said. He fled on foot before officers responded to the scene. The suspect was described as a man between 6 feet and 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighing between 160 and 170 pounds. 

His description and his camouflage jacket matched that of a suspect in armed robberies of pharmacies in Snellville, Lilburn and Loganville. The suspect in those cases struck a Rite Aid on Centerville Highway in Snellville on Jan. 8, a CVS on Burns Road in Lilburn on Jan. 16, and a CVS on Loganville Highway in Loganville on Jan. 21. 

Anyone with information about any of these cases 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.
