Thieves burgle Forsyth grocery store



CUMMING, Ga. — Two men broke into a grocery store, took a safe and cash drawer and stole about $4,500 in cash and silver “religious coins,” according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

About 1:20 a.m., May 19, the alarm company and a witness called deputies to report a break-in at the Suvidha Indo-Pak Groceries, 3495 Peachtree Parkway.

The witness said a man dressed in black carried a safe between the homes in the subdivision behind the grocery store and a second man loaded the safe into a gray sport utility vehicle.

Deputies searched the store and noticed a cash box discarded on the floor, a trail of coins that led from the front to the rear of the store and the office had been entered.

Video surveillance filmed a tall thin male wearing black gloves and a mask enter the store.

The burglar went through the cash drawers. He then met with the second male dressed in black, and they ransacked the office. They left the store through the back door, broke through a wooden fence and fled.
