When he woke up July 13, his car, a red Ford Extended Ranger, was gone.

According to the Gwinnett County Police report, there are no after market parts except a trailer hitch. There is also a metal toolbox attached to the bed.  The car also has power windows and seats.

No Laughing Matter: A man working at a Redan Road Chevron gas station told DeKalb police he thought the July 2 early morning robbery at the store was a joke at first, according to the police report.

While his back as turned, the second of two suspects came in the establishment and placed an unknown object, believed to be a handgun, against the small of the victim's back and told him to go to the register and "give me all the money," according to the report.

The victim told police he thought it was a joke for a moment because he recognized the voice of the second suspect, who frequently comes into the store throughout the week, the victim said.

Forget something? A burglar who broke into a home in the 5600 block of Rebecca Ct. in Stone Mountain-Gwinnett County may have left an important tool behind.

An officer who responded to the home on July 15 to meet with the victim noticed a silver flashlight laying in the driveway. The victim said it did not belong to her.

She told police she left her home "locked and in its rightful place"  the day before at 10 a.m., came back at 9 p.m. on July 15 and saw that her rear door was kicked in, according to the report.

The officer cleared the residence and said it appeared nothing had been bothered; the victim then took a look around and saw nothing (besides the back door) was damaged, and nothing was taken.

The flashlight was put into evidence.
