Several law enforcement agencies from across metro Atlanta took to the streets last night for what they called a “major crime crackdown.” As I was on my way to the 24 hour post office to drop off my late property tax return, I noticed APD paddy wagons and a command stations parked in the normally empty lots at Turner Field. My lame “A”zz…not knowing what was going on, continued to jabber on the phone and drive while about 10 police cars flew by me at the red light.
When I got home, I learned that authorities had staged a mobile command center at the green lot of Turner Field and were performing a crime sweep of several areas. *Side note* If you’re doin dirt, why must you be so obvious? I’m sure some vehicles are more “suspect” than others…case in point:
In one case, authorities pulled over a Dodge Magnum in southeast Atlanta for a traffic violation. Upon searching the vehicle, authorities said they found marijuana, a sawed-off shotgun and an M1 Carbine. Authorities said as it turned out, one of the three individuals inside the vehicle was wanted for robbery and the fugitive squad had been looking for the individual. Police said the other two people inside the vehicle were also taken into custody. Police said they hoped to remove narcotics and weapons from city streets in an effort to create a safer Atlanta.
