You can see the Snellville City limit sign from Hurndon Road. So sad that people move to our community looking for the quiet life and bring their negative behavior with them.

The incident happened behind Snellville Middle. The road after you pass the school .

As a minority resident of Snellville since 1992, I am alarmed by the surge of crimes both violent & non-violent in the couple of years. There is no doubt Snellville was a quite time before and during my initial time but the heavy presence of commerce has brought it's ugly side to Snellville. I remember when the police office was on 78 and may less than 4 police patrol cars. The city is suffering from the overwhelming growth with its benefits and problems. The city must go after these criminals and prosecute them vigorously and deter criminals from looking at Snellville as a safe habor. The school system is suffering from its past excellent record as well. TL

This particular crime, and the majority of violent crimes, have taken place in unincorporated Snellville, just outside the city limits. Our police department is absolutely amazing, but the crime outside of their jurisdiction can seem intimidating. Here's an article that will give you an idea of crime rates inside city limits over the past ten years: http://snellville.patch.com/articles/10-year-look-at-gwinnett-county-crime
