Police search for serial burglary suspect hitting West Midtown condos

Apartment residents in northwest Atlanta have been advised to be on the alert after a series of burglaries.

Atlanta Police said they are on the lookout for a thief who is breaking down doors and grabbing resident's items. A surveillance camera at one of the complexes captured a picture of the man investigators believe is responsible.

Police said the same man hit a complex on Northside Drive as well as another on Howell Mill Road. And it's possible the same man could be responsible for other burglaries, according to investigators.

Residents at one location said they received an email instructing them to not allow others through the electronic entrances which get people onto the property. In the email, they were also told to activate the apartment’s alarm system if they had not already done so.
