By AccessWDUN Staff

Gwinnett Police need help locating a man caught on video surveillance who attempted to make coffee while burglarizing several businesses in Sugar Hill Monday. 

A series of businesses on Bailey Ave. were hit Monday morning between the hours of midnight and 3 a.m., Gwinnett County officials said in a press release Wednesday.

The suspect spent the duration of the time stealing computer equipment, televisions, sports memorabilia and food. 

He can be seen in the video wearing a baseball helmet while attempting to make coffee in what looks like a Keurig-style coffee maker. Since the suspect could not operate the coffee maker successfully, he stole several of the coffee pods instead. 

"At one point, he may have even attempted to steal a van parked on the property. Detectives are eager to identify this suspect," Cpl. Michele Pihera said in the press release. 

Police are asking anyone with information to share in this case to contact GCPD detectives at 770-513-5300

Tipster can remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477) or visit

Crime Stopper tipsters can receive a cash reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case. 

Case number: 19-086257 & 19-086274
