A resident of the Drayton Woods subdivision in Tucker wants to start a neighborhood watch program after a seeing an increase in car break-ins in recent weeks.
Elias Leverett posted on Facebook: "Residents
of Drayton Woods and surrounding subdivisions: someone is trying to
break into cars by gaining access through your sunroof. Have had
someone attempt this in two cars in my driveway off Brantford Drive. The
thefts and brake-ins in our areas (are) getting out of hand. I want to
start up a true Neighborhood Watch with active members, some of (whom) would be POST Certified."
It's not just that part of town that's having problems. David Diaz commented: "I
live in the Midvale area and am experiencing the same with break-ins
(not through sunroofs). Something needs to be done about it ASAP."
Everett explained what is needed. "Basically it's an off duty cop, someone that can detain and use force."
"Street Tip #1: Don't leave anything in a car, even if you don't think it is valuable," wrote Bruce Nutter.
