Thief With Eyeglasses ‘Like LeBron James’ Snatches Computer

Man was using his computer at the Mall of Georgia when it was taken.

A Lawrenceville man initially did not realize what was happening when another man took his laptop computer and began to walk away during an Oct. 1 incident at the Mall of Georgia.

The victim said he was sitting outside a store using his computer when a man walked by and made eye contact, but did not speak. A few moments later, the man returned accompanied by a man wearing jeans, a vest and “eyeglasses like LeBron James.” The eyeglass-wearing male reportedly took the victim’s MacBook Pro out of his lap and “began casually walking away.”

The victim said he initially thought the suspect was just playing. Once he realized the man was stealing the computer, he began chasing the man and his accomplice. The victim said he ended the pursuit once outside the mall because it was dark. The man notified a mall security officer, who in turn called Gwinnett County Police.

The laptop has an estimated value of $1,200. The case is listed as active.
