$2M in items recovered in crime spree against Asian Americans

Police in Gwinnett County near Atlanta indicted a dozen people in a series of burglaries in homes of wealthy Asian Americans.

Fox5 reports authorities serving a search warrant recovered $2 million dollars worth of stolen luxury items.

They recovered 200 high-end handbags, money, jewelry, counterfeit social security cards and passports, according to WSB radio.

Police say those indicted are connected to similar crimes in neighboring counties of Forsyth, Fayette, Clarke, Oconee and Bibb Counties as well as the state of Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia were also targeted in the burglary ring.

“They would wait for the individuals to leave or somehow verify they were not home and they would go into the residence,” said Cpl. Ryan Winderweedle with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

Authorities made a similar bust two years ago, but say the cases are not connected.
