Neighborhoods around Idlewood Road in Tucker, between Fellowship Road and Ponce De Leon Avenue, have lately been the target of thieves who break into cars at night, and residents are getting tired of it.
A local email list called ICON, run by Drayton Woods* resident Jan Mixon, has numerous comments from people whose possessions have been stolen. “Cars are still being rummaged through in our area. It appears they are hitting all of the subdivisions around here,” she said. “They have even gotten so brazen that they are now entering vehicles at homes on Idlewood Road.”
Electronic devices appear to be the thieves’ favored item. Jeff Kilpatrick, who lives in Idlewood Acres West, said: “They opened my truck and van doors and stole two GPS units.”
“Our car was rummaged through last night and they took our GPS, money, and cell phone chargers,” said Barry
