An Atlanta car thief leaped from the fifth floor of an apartment complex’s parking deck near Lenox Mall during a police chase. The thief was one of four males between the ages of 18-21 who were all pursued by police. This chase happened around 2 a.m. after an alert of vehicle break-ins at the complex.
This type of crime has become epidemic in Atlanta so the officers were motivated to catch these individuals. Two of the males were captured trying to exit a crashed (and possibly stolen) vehicle. Another male was apparently inside the car in the back seat. Police body camera footage showed an officer chasing down yet another suspect wearing a grey hoodie. This person wound up jumping out of the parking deck at the fifth-floor level, plunging several stories to the concrete surface below. The suspect who jumped was sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
