Robbery while pumping gas in Atlanta has continued to grow and now moving into the neighborhoods. For weeks now these robberies have mainly been a south Fulton gas station issue but cops are seeing more slider crimes in the community while residents are coming out of their homes. Slider crimes get the name from robbers sliding into cars once owners get out and become distracted. South Fulton’s Homeowners Alliance President Corroll Driskell is diligently working to get security to create a safe environment for residents.
Some steps you can take to prevent being a victim (although no one is safe from theft) try to get gas during the day during busy times. Once you get out of your car shut your door and make sure your car is locked. Most importantly NEVER try to be a hero! Don’t put yourself in danger to protect your vehicle.
