Thieves hit Tucker gas station twice in 2 days

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — Police say smash-and-grab thieves broke into a Chevron on LaVista Road in Tucker twice in just 48 hours.

Workers spent Tuesday morning cleaning up the mess again.


For workers at the gas station, fear is on their minds. 

One employee showed Channel 2 Action News surveillance video from Tuesday morning before the store opened.

You can see a man bust through the front door, jump over the counter and take what he wants.

Just 48 hours earlier, another smash-and-grab burglar had left behind the same kind of mess.

Workers said on Sunday a man used a rock to bust through the glass door.

He is seen on camera swiping the register before taking off.
The owner said sales are down 30 percent since Sunday.
