Some residents at the Wellington Court apartment complex said thieves are running wild. Darlene Mosley said her husband's truck was hit three times in two months.
"The first time they took my radio out, which was screwed in there. They also pulled out the dash, broke the window, the door and messed up all the electronics," Mosley said.
Mosley said two weeks later the thief came back and stole her husband's power tools.
"Then I think three weeks later they came back and took the catalytic converter from underneath the vehicle," Mosley said.
Several other residents, who didn't want to give their name, told CBS Atlanta New Reporter Bernard Watson about similar cases of car break-ins. While conducting an interview, Watson spotted the property manager and he agreed to answer Watson's Tough Questions.
"So what can you say to residents to make them feel safer," asked Watson.
"We think we know who the thieves are. The residents who have been here with me for a while they know when we had the problem in unit 914, I paid them to leave and they left. I am considering doing the same thing for the people we suspect are causing the problems now," said Victor Roldan, the property manager.
"Why pay them to leave? Why not boot them out or get them arrested," Watson asked.
"I need proof. I live here so the residents' problems are my problems because I live here. I am a resident so I would say hang on we are working on the problem," Roldan said.
