SUGAR HILL — A Sugar Hill business was robbed on two different dates by what is thought to be the same suspects.

According to a Gwinnett County Police Department incident report, on Sept. 27 two suspects used a hammer to smash the front door of Herrera Auto Sales, which was closed at the time. Security footage showed the suspects enter the business and move straight to a closet containing vehicle keys. Taking one of the keys, the suspects exited the building, ran through the parking lot and left the property in a Ford F-150 truck.

The front door had been repaired when in the early morning hours of Sept. 29, two suspects, after an unsuccessful attempt at entering the front door, smashed a side window to enter the business. According to police, the suspects were wearing the same clothing during the previous robbery and had the same body type. This time, however, the suspects found the closet empty of keys as the business owner has taken them home for safekeeping.

The suspects did make off with a jar of approximately $100 in cash that was sitting on an office desk.

According to police, the suspects appeared to be two males in their late teens or early 20s, and both appeared to be light-skin black males or Hispanic males. Both appeared to be tall and slender in build.
