GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Three men being watched by authorities are arrested last week after attempting to break into an undercover investigator's vehicle with him sitting inside.
The two suspects charged with entering the vehicle were 21-year-old Micheal Smith and 24-year-old Thomas Patrick. According to Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer, Shannon Volkodav, the duo grabbed the door handle of the investigator's vehicle and tried to get inside. That's when the undercover investigator apprehended and arrested the pair with the help of fellow investigators.
Smith of Duluth was wanted by the Gwinnett County Police Department on charges of Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault, False Imprisonment and Possession of a Firearm stemming from an incident on January 13, 2020, while he was out on bond on felony murder charges for the death of his girlfriend.
