We have received notification of a car break in on the corner of Woodland Avenue and Arlington Avenue on Monday morning. The car was parked in the street. The thieves took approximately $25 worth of stuff from the vehicle, however, they broke the window in doing so which greatly increased the damage done.
The DeKalb County Police Department and the Woodland Hills neighborhood watch urge residents to practice responsible safety measures. It is a good idea to clear valuables out of your vehicle every night. The DCPD also encourages residents to report ANY suspicious people or activity by calling 911 immediately.
