Community Safety Alert

The Police Department is investigating three daytime residential burglaries that took place on July 25th and July 29th, 2011. The burglaries occurred at the Camden Apartments located at 100 Merrick Drive in Peachtree City. Items taken in the burglaries included electronics and other miscellaneous property. The burglars accessed each residence forcibly by kicking in the front door. On July 25th, two African American males were observed at the Building 11 crime scene just prior to the burglary. The persons of interest are described as six feet tall and weighing approximately 200 lbs or more. One of the subjects was wearing a red in color plaid vest and a tan shirt. The burglaries occurred when the residences were unoccupied

In order to promote community safety, the police department would like to remind our citizens to report any suspicious activity to the police department immediately. Additionally, it is important for you to secure your residence and be observant of your surroundings, especially as it relates to your neighborhood and neighbors. If you have a security alarm system, activate the alarm when you are away.

You can contact the Peachtree City Police Department at 770-487-8866 or Fayette County 911 Center at 770-461-4357 if you observe any suspicious activity, including individuals loitering in neighborhoods or looking into vehicles. If it seems suspicious to you, it is probably something that our police department needs to check.
