Police hope video will lead to robbery suspect

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
BUFORD - Gwinnett County Police released several video stills Wednesday in hopes of finding the man responsible for an armed robbery in Buford.

Police said the suspect robbed a BP gas station clerk at gunpoint at 2483 Hamilton Mill Road on November 11th. It happened around 4:45 a.m.

"We don't attribute this suspect to any other robberies in our jurisdiction yet, but there is the concern he might be operating elsewhere or that he might do this again," Police Cpl Jake Smith said.

The suspect left on foot after taking $100 from the cash register. No one was injured, according to police.

Suspect is described as white, 19-25 years old, approximately 5'10" to 6'01" tall, 170 to 190 pounds. Police said the suspect's hands were described as dirty or greasy, "like a mechanic's hands."

"The video is pretty good from the incident, and the still photos we are hopeful will lead us to this person's identity," Smith said.

Police ask anyone with suspect information call the Gwinnett County Police Department Robbery Unit at 770-513-5300.
