Norcross Car Wash Robbed After Job Inquiry

Inside the Police Reports: The owner told police the suspect asked for a job before robbing his business.

A car wash in the Norcross area was allegedly robbed earlier this month after the suspect inquired about open job positions.

According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the incident occurred around 11:40 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5, at Rainbow Car Wash off Hillcrest Road and Indian Trail Road in unincorporated Norcross.

The owner had been cleaning the parking lot and returned to his office to find a man inside. He asked for a job, and the owner told him that he wasn't hiring at the moment. The man walked away toward Hillcrest Road.

He returned a short time later, this time with a handgun. He told the owner to give him all his money and his driver's license. The victim complied, and the alleged robber then walked away toward Indian Trail Road by the Chevron gas station. The suspect dropped the license prior to fleeing, though, according to the owner.

The victim described the suspect as a black male who was 6'5" and 170 to 180 pounds, and was wearing a white shirt with stripes, jeans, and a tan-colored baseball hat with a gold sticker in the center of the bill. His gun was also a black semi-automatic.
