NEIGHBORHOOD CONFRONTS ANOTHER SPIKE IN HOME BURGLARIES
Since early November, there has been a series of home burglaries and attempted home burglaries in Druid Hills. This follows a similar spike earlier in the fall.
With holidays on the horizon, we must be especially vigilant!
Please be aware of what is happening in and around our neighborhood. The only real way to fight this type of crime is to stay informed and communicate with each other and the police. If you see anything suspicious, please call 911. Don’t hesitate even if you are unsure.
Below is a description of the perpetrators involved in an attempted burglary on Sunday, November 17, on Princeton Way, and a burglary on Monday morning, November 18, on Burlington Road.
One suspect is approximately 6’ feet tall; the other around 5’ 9’’ tall. One wore a red jacket with dark pants; the other wore a white shirt and dark pants with an NFL blue and red styled toboggan. Both appeared to be African-American. They arrived in a blue (could be black) compact car, possibly a Honda Fit. The car had a New Orleans Saints sticker on the back.
