Since late last week, numerous reports have been coming in of armed robberies in our vicinity. This includes attempts in the 800 block of Gresham just outside the Atlanta city limits, and one on Lakeview East Drive, as well as several more in Ormewood Park. They may be targeting people driving up to residences after dark, so please be extremely certain that you aren't followed home or that no one is lurking near where you park your car. If you have any concerns about your safety, drive to a safe place, call 911, then call the East Atlanta Security Patrol at 404-954-1568. Our number can be called by anyone; you don't need to be a member to call. If you're out in the evening enjoying our fine weather, be sure to call as well if you see suspicious activity, such as cars driving slowly or circling the block.
