Atlanta police are increasing patrols in a Buckhead neighborhood after an uptick in home burglaries.
Witnesses told Channel 2’s Rachel Stockman the thieves are getting away with silverware, jewelry, lawn equipment and other items.
An Atlanta police official said the precinct has increased patrols in northwest Buckhead after six to seven residential burglaries in the last several weeks.
It is unclear if the burglaries are connected. Neighbors, meanwhile, are disseminating emails to alert each other.
“It makes me feel uncomfortable. I don’t know where to start as far as who to contact about police protection except to ask the City of Atlanta to have more patrols throughout our neighborhood,” resident Judy Hardin said.
Police are looking for a newer model silver Altima and a smaller black pickup truck in connection with the case.
Police have also alerted the agency's burglary unit to be on the lookout for suspicious activity.
