Perception of Crime Watch®: Property crime

Jesse Altman, CEO of Grant Park-based coffee energy drink maker Whynatte, says the Perception of Crime in Atlanta broke into his company's headquarters early Tuesday evening.

Altman says building security cameras captured images of the Perception of Crime in the shape of three young men who walked off with two of Whynatte's laptops, some cash, and an assortment of electronics.

From Altman's e-mail to Perception of Crime Watch®:

Cops dusted for fingerprints - said that it would take 6-12 months to run the prints since it's a non-violent crime. Office next door was burglarized last week.  Cars have been getting broken into on a weekly basis.

Altman's frustration with the Atlanta Police Department's apparent inability to quickly cope with property crimes was echoed to me this week by a staffer at Midtown's Grady High School.

The staffer, who wishes to remain anonymous, contacted me after at least two perceived thieves broke into the school early Tuesday morning and stole 26 student computers.

The staffer told me the school's monitored burglar alarm was triggered by the perceived burglars, but police did not respond for several hours. The AJC reports today that the area around Grady is experiencing a rash of similar perceived crimes.

If the Perception of Crime in Atlanta has burglarized, robbed or stabbed you, drop us a note.
