FBAC News May 2012

On April 27 the board of The Carlton condominiums made the decision to join FBAC. There are the condos that are straight ahead of you on Ponce de Leon Avenue when you come home on Freedom Parkway. With 68 units this will represent strong new financial support for the southern zone, and will add to the patrol zone the north side of PDL Avenue between Barnett and PDL Place - something that will benefit us all.
On April 21st at 2:35am  a female walking home alone from Fontaines was held up at gunpoint by a black male with a low haircut wearing a white shirt and blue jeans. The subject was also wearing a green belt.  He was 5’9", 190 pounds. The subject grabbed the female around the waist and told her he was going to Rob her. The female resisted and at that point the suspect put a gun to her temple and told her to give him everything she had or he was going to shoot her. The suspect fled with her credit cards and iPhone. The female was not injured during the incident.
The Virginia-Highland Area has experienced an increase in larcenies from vehicles and auto thefts. Zone Six has experienced the same increase with larcenies from vehicles and auto thefts. The Zone is currently running a strong detail on the night shift in an attempt to apprehend suspects that are committing these crimes. If you see any suspicious activity, please report it to the police.
FBAC received valuable information in the way of a suspicious person last month and we would like to encourage our members to continue to advise police of this information.  A subject was reported looking into vehicles and once he was stopped by an FBAC Officer it was determined the subject was wanted on another crime, which was a larceny out of Dekalb County.  The subject was arrested without incident and transported to jail.
