Significant Incidents:

Commercial Burglary 865 N. Highland Av

On Saturday, May 30, police responded to an alarm call at 865 N. Highland Ave NE (CVS Pharmacy). Upon arrival, officers discovered the front glass doors shattered out.  Police entered and cleared the building at 7:20 AM and discovered the interior pharmacy door pried open and the rear door open.  The pharmacy appeared to have been rummaged through.  Police secured the back door and contacted the store operators who were already aware and en route.


Attempted Residential Burglary 700-Block Frederica St NE (ARREST MADE)

On June 16, shortly after midnight multiple officers responded to a prowler call on the 700 block of Frederica St.  A second call was reported in the same location advising a person may have been shot, laying under a silver Nissan Altima.  Two officers located the suspect under the vehicle (who had not been shot) while two officers spoke to the victim who called about the prowler.


The victim had recently arrived at home and was sitting on his couch talking to his girlfriend, when he observed a shadow outside the window going up the steps to his door.  The victim immediately observed the door handle on the front door moving, as the person outside attempted to break in.  The victim approached the door and told the male suspect to leave.  The suspect still attempted to take a bicycle that was left on the porch as he was walking away.


The victim was armed with his gun and warned the suspect that he had a gun, yelling “gun, gun, gun” and shot a round into the air to scare the suspect, at which point the suspect took off running and fell down multiple steps.  The victim grabbed his bicycle and ran back into the house to call 911.  The victim’s 9-year-old daughter was also inside the house.  Police spoke to neighbors who heard the shouting and gunshot and saw the suspect laying under the vehicle where he was discovered by police.  The victim positively identified the suspect as the person who attempted to break into his home.  The suspect was subsequently identified as Kavan Whiteside, and he was found in possession of a package belonging to another possible victim.  Mr. Whiteside had an outstanding warrant out of the City of Atlanta for larceny.  He was placed into custody and charged with CRIMINAL ATTEMPT TO COMMIT BURGLARY OCGA 16-4-1 and transported to Grady Hospital due to some ankle pain complaints.


If you see someone or something suspicious, please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.

Reminder:  All members call 911 first if you see a crime in progress or a suspicious person or activity, and then call the Virginia Highland Security Patrol Phone.  The phone number is 770-310-0871.
