Snellville Police News
From Snellville January Monthly Report:
We responded to a bank robbery at the Wachovia Bank on Scenic Highway. The perpetrator gave the teller a note demanding money. She placed the money in a bag along with a dye pack. As the robber crossed the Wal-Mart parking lot, the dye pack exploded. He disappeared from view around the corner of the building.
Investigators determined the same man robbed a bank a Cobb County. While trying to identify the perpetrator, the man robbed another bank in Dunwoody. A DeKalb County police officer observed a suspicious man running from the Bank of American and took him into custody. Before we could confirm it was the same suspect, he was released on bond from the DeKalb County Jail. Armed with our arrest warrant, we went to his residence in Gwinnett County.
While waiting on approval from the Gwinnett P.D. supervisor, we observed the suspect leaving the residence. He was taken into custody without incident. Once his lawyer arrived, he gave a videotaped confession to all three robberies. The man admitted that he flushed all the money from our robbery because the dye pack exploded on it. He was afraid this would lead to his capture.
