According to the Gwinnett County Police Department incident report, the man placed his driver's license, watch, credit cards and gift cards in a locker before his workout. When he returned to his locker to retrieve his belongings, his lock was still on his locker and the locker door appeared to be in the locked position.
"[The man] advised he grabbed his lock to unlock it and the locker door opened," the officer wrote in the report. The man's belongings -- including a Tag Heuer watch valued at $3,000 -- were missing.
The man told police he had not given anyone permission to remove the items from his locker and had no idea who had taken his belongings.
Later that evening, the man contacted police again after learning one of his credit cards had been used to make two purchases at Best Buy -- one for $3,497.98 and the other for $119.98. The man advised there was a $1,000 limit on the card, but Best Buy allowed the purchases to be processed anyway.
The case is listed as active.
The incident is not the first in which a gym customer has reported items taken out of locked locker. In January of 2013, a Dacula man reported his wallet had been taken out of his locked locker. Several other thefts have been reported at the gym including the theft of an Auburn man's wallet and cell phone which had been left unattended, the theft of a Hoschton's man iPhone out of an unsecured locker and the theft of an Auburn teen's unattended gym bag.
