Gwinnett County police are working to identify robbery suspects caught on security cameras stealing chips and lighters from a Shell gas station after intimidating a store clerk.
Police said the incident occurred on Dec. 21 at a Shell located at 1745 Indian Trail Road in Norcross.
Police said two males suspects originally were picking up items up and setting them down in different areas of the store. The store clerk was suspicious that the two men were planning to steal merchandise and accused the two men of stealing when they were leaving the store.
Police said one suspect turned around and walked up to the clerk. The suspect is seen on camera rolling his shoulders back, puffing out his chest and making fists. The clerk retreated to safety behind the cash register.
The clerk tried to lock the suspect in the store when the suspect began to gather bags of chips and Bic lighters. When the suspect noticed the door was locked, police said he approached the secure cashier area and threatened the clerk. The clerk unlocked the door and both suspects left with the chips and lighters.
Police said the suspects got into an early 2000’s Mazda or Hyundai.
