Multiple Townhomes Burglarized, Appliances Stolen
Incidents occurred during the overnight hours of Dec. 20.
Several townhomes were burglarized and numerous appliances stolen after a burglar or burglars smashed windows and broke doors to gain access to the interior of three residences on Brockenhurst Drive in Buford.
A contractor with Rocklyn Homes contacted Gwinnett County Police on Dec. 21 after arriving at work and discovering the damage to the townhomes and the thefts. According to the police report, the front door of the first townhome had been broken and a refrigerator moved to the front door. The second townhome had a broken rear window and the third townhome had a smashed rear door window. The exterior pane of a double-paned window had been broken at a fourth townhome, but the interior glass was intact and there was no sign of forced entry.
In each unit, the thief or thieves took a microwave and an oven. In two of the townhomes, the refrigerators had been moved but were still inside the residences. However, a front door in one of the townhomes and a sliding glass door in another townhome were damaged when the burglar or burglars attempted to remove the refrigerators.
According to the contractor, air conditioning units had been stolen from the townhomes several weeks prior to the burglary. After that theft, the contractor installed video surveillance. Footage from the time period of the burglary showed a male with his back turned and a dark colored sport utility vehicle. The contractor advised he would email the photos to the officer.
The case is listed as active.
