DeKalb County Police released surveillance of two young men they call dangerous burglars, who stole guns in a home and even fired weapons at a safe to steal the weapons inside.
Police said the recent burglaries have occurred in south DeKalb County in the Cedar Trace community near Panthersville and River roads. Authorities believe the young men, who are possibly teens, who live or hang out in the nearby Soapstone community.
"My biggest fear is them using the guns on somebody because they're so young," said homeowner Natasha Huggins.
Huggins hopes people in the community can help identify the brazen burglars who broke into her home. She said the young men cracked open a safe to get to a gun, then fired at her other safe to obtain other weapons.
"If someone was home, that could have been a dangerous confrontation," said Sgt. Louis Pierre of the DeKalb County Police South Precinct, who is working to identify the individuals. "They're definitely bold, dangerous, and now they're armed."
Police have linked the young men to two burglaries, but believe they could be behind multiple break-ins in DeKalb County.
"It's kind of scary to think... what young kids these days are thinking," Huggins said.
Huggins said this is the second time this year her home has been burglarized.
Anyone with information on the identity of these two individuals is asked to call the DeKalb County South Precinct at 404-286-7911. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS and receive a reward up to $2,000.
