28 MORE GUNS HIT STREETS
FROM BUCKHEAD THEFTS, POLICE SAY
Another 28 guns hit the streets after being stolen from cars in the Buclchead area in
October, police say.
That continues a trend of more than 200 such thefts a year of firearms, ammo or gun
accessories from cars.
Capt. Anthony Singh, assistant commander of the Atlanta Police Department’s Buck-
head-area Zone 2 precinct, reported the number at the Nov. 5 meeting of NPU-A. He
urged residents to stop leaving unsecured firearms in cars.
“We don’t want to put guns in the wrong person’s hand,” said Singh. “The teenagers,
the 11-year-olds, the 12-year-olds — they know what to do with a gun now.”
Singh said the guns stolen from cars in the previous month included such high-qual
ity brands as Glock, Sig Sauer and Smith & Wesson.
Many metro Atlanta police departments are warning residents to stop leaving any
valuables unsecured in cars, with guns being the most dangerous item thieves often
Last year, Sandy Springs police reported 54 gun thefts from cars, and Brookhaven
police reported 22 stolen guns through July 31. In 2018, Zone 2 reported 230 stolen guns,
ammo or firearm accessories in a combined stat.
RAP STARS REPORT MORE THAN $366K
IN JEWELRY STOLEN IN HOUSE BURGLARY
Rap stars Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti say a burglar stole more than $366,000 in
jewelry from their Buclchead rental house Nov. 14 while Azalea was home alone, accord
ing to a police report.
The suspect in the burglary in the 2900 block of Howell Mill Road was masked and
may have been carrying a gun, Carti told police based on a surveillance video officers
had yet to view at the time of the Nov. 17 incident report.
The Atlanta Police Department could not immediately say whether similar burglar
ies have been reported in the area.
Azalea told police that she was alone in the basement of the house around 10 p.m.
when she heard footsteps on the second floor. She said she had left the back door un
locked so that Carti could enter the house and believed the footsteps were his. Howev
er, Azalea and Carti told police, it was a burglar who spent less than 10 minutes in the
house and stole a bag from the dining room that contained their large collection of jew
elry and watches.
Azalea and Carti said they had a surveillance video showing the burglar looking at
the basement window and entering the house through the back door. Carti told police
he believes the burglar had a gun and was wearing a dark mask and gloves.
They reported more than 20 pieces of jewelry were stolen. Azalea valued hers at
$366,000, while Carti was awaiting a value estimate from his insurance company for
his items. The report was filed under the rappers’ given names: Amethyst Kelly and Jor
DEKALB-PEACHTREE AIRPORT LAUNCHES
FLIGHT-TRACKER NOISE COMPLAINT SYSTEM
DeKalb-Peachtree Airport has launched a web-based noise complaint system that al
lows users to identify disruptive aircraft on live flight-tracking radar.
The “Symphony PublicVue” system, available on the DeKalb County website, was
presented at a Nov. 18 meeting of the PDK Airport Advisory Board by Korey Barnes, the
facility’s new environmental and noise analyst.
The system shows aircraft flying around PDK in a live radar feed that is on a 10-min-
ute “security delay.” Some information about each flight, such as its number and desti
nation, may be available.
The system also allows users to file noise complaints via a form, if they register and
create an account. The account keeps a log of all of their complaints.
Users can file a complaint without using the flight-traclcer and can view the flight-
tracker without filing a complaint.
Symphony PublicVue is created by Florida-based L3Harris. According to media re
ports, it is used at some other airports around the country, including the major com
mercial airports in Boston and Seattle-Tacoma.
Some residents at the Advisory Board meeting questioned the usefulness of the sys
tem, saying local residents had created a complaint-filing app that is easier to use and
that the 10-minute delay would make it hard to single out an aircraft in busy times.
Barnes said that identifying the aircraft is not really necessary because he can do it lat
er by checking complaint times against the flight data.
“This is a test,” said airport Director Mario Evans. “If we find that the community...
does not want the tool, we will unplug it.”
