Two charged with theft from gas station air machine in Forsyth


January 11, 2013
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — On Jan. 10, deputies responded to Smart Stop 2, a Shell gas station on Buford Highway, Cumming, in reference to a theft.

The owner, Nabeel Vira, said he was working inside the store and heard a drilling sound outside. When he went to investigate, he saw a man standing next to a minivan drilling into the air pump machine with a power tool.

Vira questioned the man, who said he was "cleaning out his van." Vira noticed damage to the machine and went inside and called 9-1-1. While he was inside, the van left, but not before Vira gave a description of the van and its occupants to Dispatch.

While deputies investigated the damage to Vira's air machine, other deputies canvassed nearby gas stations and found that six others had damage to their air machines and quarters stolen out of all of them. Meanwhile, Deputy Brandon Day noticed a vehicle fitting the description of the minivan described and stopped it.

The minivan's driver and passenger fit the description provided, and investigators were called to the scene. Inside the vehicle, Investigator Frank Karic found a bag containing several quarters, as well as grinders and other tools. Cedric J. Bell, 49, of Highview Road, Atlanta and Cassandra N. Goodjohn, 36, of Pegg Road, Atlanta confessed to committing the theft and were arrested for Criminal Damage and Theft. Both remain in custody at the Forsyth County Detention Center. Goodjohn's bond was set at $6,765; Bell is being held with no bond.

    $6,765? I wonder if it will be paid with 27,060 quarters?
