(John Spink /

According to AJC, the Atlanta Police Department is investigating after at least 20 cars were broken into overnight at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital on Peachtree Road. Officers arrived about 3 a.m. Tuesday to speak with victims and found at least 20 vehicles parked at the hospital had been broken into, the department said.

The incident occurred as the department warns folks to remain vigilant during the busy holiday season.

“Burglaries are one of the most common crimes and, in many cases, are a result of opportunistic thieves gaining access through open or unlocked doors and windows,” APD said in a social media post.

Other metro Atlanta law enforcement agencies have reported crimes of opportunity this holiday season.

Douglasville investigators are looking for a pair accused of stealing numerous packages from the mailroom of an apartment complex the other day, according to police. The man and woman, who have not yet been identified, stuffed the mail into garbage bags before leaving, police said.
