After witnessing her Snellville-area home being burglarized, a woman said she followed the suspects' vehicle and repeatedly rear-ended them.
According to the Gwinnett County Police report, the 63-year-old woman left her home on the 3800 block of Saddle Ridge Dr. around 11 a.m. Sunday to go to church. She told authorities that she forgot something, so she went back.
She was only gone for 10 minutes. When she pulled up to her house, she noticed an occupied car sitting on the side of the road near her residence, but didn't think anything of it at first. She entered her home and noticed the lights on, which is odd since she had turned them off before leaving.
The homeowner realized someone was in the home when she heard a noise upstairs and saw the backdoor standing open.
When she ran outside and got back into her car, the other car started to move. A man ran from her house toward the other car and took off the car tag.
The woman then started following the vehicle and rear-ended them. She continued to follow the suspects on Mountain Glen Trace and Centerville Highway, where she rear-ended them a second time.
She followed them until Smokecreek Parkway, where she decided to go back home. The report doesn't detail why she stopped following them.
The victim described the man inside her home as being black, and the driver appeared to be a blonde white Hispanic woman in her early 20s. The suspects' vehicle was a gray Chevy passenger car, possibly an Impala that looked similar to a Gwinnett Police patrol car. Police observed heavy damage to the front of the victim's car, so there must be heavy damage to the other vehicle.
She did an inventory of her home and nothing appeared to be taken, but her backdoor and doorframe were damaged. Inside the Police Reports runs regularly every week.
