Gas station burglar comes up empty


He entered a gas station after hours, hoping to pump the register for cash. But this burglar left a Snellville Shell station empty-handed.

A security camera caught the man trying to open the register about 12:30 a.m. Monday, according to police. He didn’t get into the register, but it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. It was empty.

Snellville police want to find this would-be thief and need the public’s help to identify him. He had a large, stud earring in the upper part of his left ear and was wearing a large cross necklace when he entered the store on U.S. 78, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Snellville police at 770-985-3555 or Detective Laura Steele at 770-985-7213.
