ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Wayne Gandy, a former Falcons player, is the latest motorist to leave a health club to discover glass on the ground around his car.
He played on the offensive side of the ball. He acknowledges he failed to play defense in respect to keeping his car clean, no valuables left inside.
Something was used by the thief to crack a window, and it folded over to leave a large area for the thief's hands.
"It's a violation," Gandy said, about his reaction when he looked at his car.
Rachel Phillips, the manager of the Athletic Club Northeast, said she is sorry one of her guests had to suffer the expense and the hassle of a car break-in.
And the hassle lingers. Gandy now has to apply wrapping over the window until he can order replacement glass. And that can take a week at least.
Metro police agencies say health clubs are very popular with thieves because they are counting on patrons’ behavior to try to get in and out without taking any valuables inside the club to lock up.
