Gas Station Burglary Caught on Video

Thieves escape with cash drawers and change box.

Gwinnett County Police are investigating an Oct. 8 burglary at a Dacula gas station that was captured on surveillance video.

On the morning of Oct. 8, an employee of the BP gas station at 352 Harbins Road arrived at work and unlocked the front doors. Once inside, the employee started a pot of coffee before realizing two cash drawers and a change box were missing. At that point, the employee noticed the back door was open so she walked outside and called 911.

According to the police report, the back door had a single mark on it that appeared to have been made by a sledgehammer. The wires to the alarm system had also been cut.

The owner of the business came to the store to pull up the surveillance footage. The video reportedly showed two males wearing dark clothing, gloves and some kind of cloth covering over their faces enter the gas station at approximately 4:15 a.m. and take the cash drawers and the change box. The cash drawers contained $20 each and the metal change box held approximately $250.

The case is listed as active.
