Arnold Schwarzenegger Coming to Tucker -- Tucker Patch

He's baaaack.

Residents of a neighborhood in the Atlanta suburb of Tucker are in for a bit of an upheaval later in October. A production company is moving in for a couple of days to shoot scenes for a movie and coming with them is ... Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The movie in question is called "Breacher" and tells the sordid tale of a group of rogue DEA agents who get their comeuppance in gruesome ways. The title refers to the main character's name, played by the "governator" himself. 

"'Breacher"... will be very like a new "Predator,'" Schwarzenegger told Empire Magazine. "It's a team around me and they get knocked off until there's only me left. Except in this case there will be a different twist to the whole thing instead of some alien monster." Variety describes "Breacher" as a "testosterone-heavy riff on Agatha Christie's 'Ten Little Indians.'" (The film's original title was "Ten").

The movie, due for release in 2013, also stars Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard and Dawn Olivieri

The former governor of California is trying to rekindle his film career, among other things. He's also been busy promoting his autobiography and apologizing to his family for marital indiscretions. His wife, Maria Shriver, has filed for divorce.

The Tucker location is Brockett Walk, close to Lawrenceville Highway, on Oct. 23 and 24. Residents were informed of the project in a letter and told that crews will be in the area with trucks and equipment in the week leading up to Oct. 23.

Walter Thompson, location manager for Brentwood Productions, said that the location is a closed set.

Gas Station Burglary Caught on Video -- Dacula Patch

Gwinnett County Police are investigating an Oct. 8 burglary at a Dacula gas station that was captured on surveillance video.

On the morning of Oct. 8, an employee of the BP gas station at 352 Harbins Road arrived at work and unlocked the front doors. Once inside, the employee started a pot of coffee before realizing two cash drawers and a change box were missing. At that point, the employee noticed the back door was open so she walked outside and called 911.

According to the police report, the back door had a single mark on it that appeared to have been made by a sledgehammer. The wires to the alarm system had also been cut.

The owner of the business came to the store to pull up the surveillance footage. The video reportedly showed two males wearing dark clothing, gloves and some kind of cloth covering over their faces enter the gas station at approximately 4:15 a.m. and take the cash drawers and the change box. The cash drawers contained $20 each and the metal change box held approximately $250.
