Gwinnett County police arrested two men they say broke into a home on Creekside Drive in the North River Crossing neighborhood Tuesday.
Christopher Alvarez and Ramon Torres-Gonzalez were charged with burglary. Neighbors in Peachtree Corners saw it happening and called police.
"This is absolutely not okay. We do watch out for each other. We will do it again. We will catch the people again because we know who is up and down this street," neighbor Katie Askue said.
Askue said the same men are accused of breaking into multiple cars in the area, including some parked at Simpson Elementary School.
"I made a joke last night that I busted a theft ring in my neighborhood," Gruel said.
Gruel said she spotted the same men earlier in the day trying to open her door in the North Manor subdivision without ever knocking. Then she watched them approach a neighbor's home.
"I saw them knock on the neighbor's door and wait a minute and when the neighbor didn't answer they started to look into the window, so between those two things I thought that was very suspicious and that's when I called 911," Gruel said.
It's that call that helped lead to their arrest.
"Everybody needs to watch out for everybody else. Be sure the doors are locked, the windows are locked and all the lights are on outside," neighbor Sue Hines said.
