“Five vehicles were entered in the 600-700 block of Clairemont Avenue and three vehicles were entered in the 300 block of Lamont Drive,” Ross said. “Some of the vehicles were unsecured and some were believed to have been left secured but there were no signs of forced entry. Sunglasses, loose change/currency, a laptop and cell phone were reported stolen.”

Ross said last week that a car was stolen from the driveway of a home in the 500 block of Ponce de Leon Place. Atlanta Police found it abandoned around the time the owner reported it stolen.

Ross said three vehicles were entered in the 400 block of Oakland Street. Owners reported loose change stolen. Another vehicle in the 200 block of Wilton Drive was also entered and a child’s bicycle was stolen, Ross said.

“The vehicles were in driveways/carports and unsecured,” Ross said.
