Burglary suspect arrested in Gwinnett County cemetery

Gwinnett County officers have arrested a man wanted in connection to a burglary of a tackle and convenience store.

According to investigators, around 3 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, 50-year-old Douglas “Wayne” McDaniel was dropped off at the Naleys II on the 5600 block of Shadburn Ferry Road in Buford.
