Atlanta men indicted for south Forsyth gas station cigarette caper
Cigarette thefts
Corey Hollingsworth and Marcus Strozier.

Two men who were arrested in 2016 for swiping nearly 200 packs of cigarettes from a south Forsyth gas station have been indicted for robbery.

Atlanta residents Corey Hollingsworth, who was 22 at the time of his arrest in February 2016, and Marcus Strozier, who was 24 at that time, face one count of robbery by sudden snatching for reportedly taking the cigarettes from the RaceTrac just north of McFarland Parkway/Exit 12 at Ga. 400 on Jan. 4, 2016.

Five men reportedly were involved in the robbery, but detectives traced the two men’s latent fingerprints and located them after they were arrested in Villa Rica for a similar incident.

The man, according to officials at the time, are reportedly gang members who “have an extensive and violent criminal history.”

It did not appear from officials at the time that any of the suspects were armed during the incident.

Forsyth County Superior Court Judge Philip C. Smith is presiding over both men’s cases, for which nothing further than an indictment has been scheduled.
