Not only is violent crime down in Buckhead, but Atlanta police made several significant arrests recently that have had an impact on both vehicle larcenies and commercial burglaries, according to Zone 2 Commander Maj. Van Hobbs at Tuesday’s meeting of Neighborhood Planning Unit – B.
At the meeting, which was held at Cathedral of Christ the King, Hobbs said police recently caught a suspect that shoplifted and then attempted to break into a car as well. As it turns out, the suspect has an extensive criminal history including robbery, burglary, larceny and auto theft. The suspect may be responsible for many car break-ins in the area.
“We tracked him back to break ins in Zone 5,” Hobbs said. “The area he was in has not had another car break-in since he was put in jail.”
