Another mass car break-in: 68 in downtown Decatur
News


DECATUR, Ga. -- Police are looking into yet another mass car break-in, this time in apartment parking lots in Decatur.

It happened overnight into Friday, with 68 cars hit across three lots on Ponce de Leon Avenue, the main drag in town.

“They’ve said it’s been multiple complexes," said Mike Putnam, who just moved to Decatur from Ohio last week. "There are rumors it might be tied to the Buckhead stuff.”

Police say most of the vehicles were rummaged through but not robbed. One car was stolen – a Jeep Cherokee. Putnam was told the police found fingerprints and surveillance footage.

“It’s frustrating," he said, "because there’s really nothing you can do about it. If they want to get in, they’ll get in.”
