Man accused of string of Atlanta car break-ins, credit card thefts

Police are searching for a man accused of breaking into four cars across Atlanta over a three-day period.

He’s accused of smashing windows to enter cars and steal whatever was inside, including credit cards, before attempting to use the stolen cards at the Kroger at 800 Glenwood Avenue, Atlanta police said in a news release.

On Thursday, two cars were burglarized in the 900 block of Marietta Street, the release said. On Saturday, he’s accused of breaking into a car in the 400 block of 16th Street before doing the same thing in the 800 block of Glenwood Avenue.
