Thief on bike

We have received two reports over the weekend of a petty thief in our neighborhood riding a blue bike. He is described as a young 20ish african american male. He has been reported knocking on doors and, in one case, taking a pair of shoes from a garage on Desmond and, in another case, a weed whacker and blower on Ava Place. The police asked that anyone seeing this person to call them with information.

Car break-in at Heritage Square

Last Thursday, a car window in Heritage Square was smashed and some items stolen from the vehicle. The common advice from police to help prevent such crime is not to leave valuables including cell phones, CDs, etc in your car in plain view. Don't hesitate to report suspicious activity to the police. The non-emergency number for DeKalb county police in our precinct is 404-294-2911.

Vandalism

Over the course of construction of the South Peachtree Creek Trail in the last two months, there have been frequent reports of substantial and costly vandalism of both materials and equipment, and now an officer of the Three Forks Heritage Alliance reports they have found a flat tire on their cars repeatedly over the same period. The CHCA board believes the overwhelming majority of residents in our neighborhood strongly opposes any and all vandalism, especially when it becomes a political tactic to sabotage our sense of safety and community.

Crime wave hits Druid Hills area

Be especially vigilant against criminal activity in the neighborhood. According to sources in the Druid Hills Civic Association, a crime wave seems to be under way in the Druid Hills area with criminals breaking into homes, even when occupied. Houses have been broken into from Fairview and Lullwater to North Decatur Road between Durand Drive and Princeton Way as late as last night. More details to follow.

Car Vandalism

Last Saturday my husband was headed to Fernbank Science Center to do some volunteer work. That is when he discovered the passenger window had been smashed to pieces. This was quite a shock because nothing like this has ever happened before to us. We live on Harrington Drive, 1 1/2 blocks in from Lawrenceville Highway. Please let us know if anyone has any information about this sort of thing happening either in the Clairmont Hills or Medlock communities. Also any advice would be appreciated. Maria Zorka Please keep an eye out for each other.

Crime

Statistically, this is a low crime area. Regular reports on incidents in a neighborhood are distributed by the DeKalb County police only if there is a Neighborhood Watch program set up. CHCA has tried in the past but could not get people to volunteer to serve as "block captains," a requirement of the program. In January 2009, however, the county, prompted in part by CHCA board requests, began offering an online map via CrimeMapping.com.
