One suspect ID’d in Gwinnett restaurant burglary, both still at large

Gwinnett County police have identified one suspect in the Jan. 6 burglary of a Norcross Vietnamese restaurant.

Brice Hayes, 33, of Lilburn, served as lookout and driver during the early morning robbery, police say. The suspect who allegedly broke into the I Luv Pho location on Jimmy Carter Boulevard and emerged with a safe two hours later has still not been identified. That suspect wore a surgical mask and a hoodie, obscuring all but his eyes.

Police have taken out two warrants for Brice’s arrest: one for burglary and one for possession of tools for the commission of a crime. Brice and the unidentified suspect are both still at large, and police don’t know their current whereabouts.

The pair used a maroon Toyota Yaris in the theft, police say. The car should display a Washington state license plate reading ALA 0652.

Anyone with information about either suspect 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.
