Asian businesses in Georgia say they’re the target of burglaries

Asian businesses in Gwinnett County, Georgia believe they have been the target of recent burglaries in the area.

John Dang the owner of tax prep business Saigon Services was one of the latest targets. According to WBS radio, thieves hit Dang’s business last Wednesday around 5 a.m. They arrived with masks, hoodies, flashlights and a crowbar, breaking the door open to search for cash.

Dang told WBS radio that he spoke to several Vietnamese business owners in the area who said their businesses have also been burglarized.

“I think they assume that we have a lot of cash transactions around,” Dang told WBS TV.

Asian businesses and family homes have been the targets of burglaries in states like Maine, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, authorities believed Asians were targeted because of the stereotypical belief that they keep a lot of cash on hand. Burglars also believe they’re less likely to talk to the authorities.
