EAST POINT, Ga. - Archie Head got angry when his vehicle got broken into. He explained that incident involved the car he used to drive.
Last weekend, in the same strip shopping center, Head came out of a restaurant to see another car he owns with broken glass all over the passenger seat.
That was it. Head, a business owner, took to Facebook to issue a warning about the Camp Creek Marketplace in East Point.
Police maintain a small precinct right in the strip mall. No matter the thieves ignore that fact.
It was last Saturday evening when Head explained someone came into the Tavern restaurant and announced eight vehicles had been hit.
"Everyone hit the door," head said, hoping their own vehicle might have been spared.
When Head saw his vehicle was among the latest batch of smashed windshields, he became very frustrated because he says he did not leave anything visible. Still, the thieves will smash the windows to check under the seats for items stowed away.
Police reported that at this one strip mall, there have been 35 car crimes over the last 30 days.
What will the police do? Continue the stepped up holiday patrols for a "few more weeks", said investigator Ebony Johnson.
