CUMMING, Ga. — An employee of an auto maintenance store came to work to find a broken window and the cash register emptied, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff's incident report.

At about 7:30 a.m. on Dec. 9, the manager of the Jiffy Lube, 718 Atlanta Highway, told deputies he saw the cash register was opened and all the coins were missing. He checked the safe, and the cash for the day's work was also missing. He looked around to check the facility and saw one of the glass windows to the rear garage door was broken.

The manager said the suspect took about $20 in coins from the register and took $200 from the moneybag inside the safe.

The office camera had been moved from the cash register area to point down to the ground.

Deputies viewed video surveillance from other cameras and saw the staff close and leave the store at about 4:50 p.m. Dec. 8.

About five minutes later, a man was seen on the garage bay camera walking toward the office. Then, the camera lost power.

The man was about 6 feet tall and wore a white shirt with brown or tan pants.
