Man with cross face tattoo robs coin laundry | News
NORCROSS, Ga. -- A distinctive tattoo and a conversation caught on video could help police find the man wanted in a coin laundry robbery.
Gwinnett County Police say the Happy Coin Laundry on Britt Road in Norcross was robbed on March 14th between 3:20 and 3:35 p.m. Surveillance video shows the suspect talking with two women in the back of the store. The women quickly gather their belongings and leave the store and get into a late 1990's brown Buick.
The man placed two dollars on the counter to buy laundry detergent. When the cashier turned around, he takes a gun out of his pocket. He points it at the woman and tells her not to scream. He walks around the counter and steals several hundred dollars. As he was walking out of the store, he briefly picks up cash that he dropped and then heads towards the nearby Food Depot. The cashier told police she distinctly remembers a cross tattoo on the man's face.
The male suspect is described as black, 5'8" - 5'11", and 140-185 pounds. His estimated age is between 18 and 28.
Police are also searching for the two women, believed to be accomplices. If you recognize any of the suspects, you can call Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-TIPS (8477) and leave an anonymous tip.
