Would-be thief rides MARTA


December 21, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. Using MARTA as a getaway device is not the smartest of moves when trying to escape police.

Employees of the Marshall's store on North Point Parkway told police a man tried to leave the store Dec. 9 with a bag full of sweaters. When he was confronted by staff, the suspect allegedly threatened them with a knife having a red handle and fled the store.

Police found Cedric Lamar Jackson, 47, of Chamblee, at a nearby MARTA bus stop, identified through physical description. He also was allegedly breathing heavily, as if he had recently been running.

He was in possession of a knife with a red handle as well as several new bottles of perfume, for which he could not give receipts or say where they were bought. Police arrested him at the MARTA stop.

    This is another example of why we don't want MARTA expanded to North Fulton County. It breeds Criminal Activity and allows these criminals access to areas that they don't belong in!

    Ga. 400 brings in FAR more criminals than MARTA could ever do up here. Like this guy, what idiots will wait for the bus after stealing something?? Much easier to drive away.

    Yeah, the whole "MARTA breeds criminal activity" line is just a pretext used by those who don't have the honesty to voice their true opinions: racial/socioeconomic prejudice.
