Updated: Jan. 6, 2014: DeKalb County police say most of the stolen items — the large electronics — that were recovered in this burglary case have been returned to their owners. A DCPD investigator told East Atlanta Patch on Monday the department is working on getting the remaining items to their owners and likely issue a news release on those goods in the near future.

Original post:
The DeKalb County Police Department's South Precinct, which includes Gresham Park and Eastland Heights, wants to speak with folks whose homes were burglarized in those areas and neighboring East Atlanta in the last six months.

The callout for victims follows the discovery last week of a so-called "stash house" — the place where burglars stored their stolen goods — on Crestdale Circle SE, near Glen Emerald Lake.

DeKalb County police discovered it Dec. 30, and retrieved a number of stolen items, including a 12-gauge shotgun, CBS Atlanta reported.

At least one person, Travione Reynolds, was arrested in case.

Reynolds, who is being held on $500 bond, is charged with obstruction of a police officer, burglary, theft by receiving stolen property and giving a false name and false information to police.

$500 bail? Either this is a typo or it's just disgusting! Why don't we just let him go on his own recognizance? Come on! We can't leave our homes to live ordinary lives without worrying about being burglarized. He'll be out in no time following the same routine he knows, and guess what...when it's time for court he'll be a no-show. Our police are working hard to control this problem, but who's to blame when the criminals they arrest are returned to the streets in less time than it took to book them?

I thought the same thing when I saw that.

$500 bail, nice work Dekalb County DA's office.
Péralte Paul January 05, 2014 at 10:47 AM
Not a typo, guys. As of late last night, the $500 still had not been paid.
Chris Murphy January 05, 2014 at 10:58 AM
Thanks, Peralte. I'm not up on the latest bail/bond procedures, but used to be that putting up 10% of the bond with a bonding co. was the get-out-of-jail card. In Atlanta & Fulton, many low or no bonds are set because the county jail runs out of space (a little publicized fact). Is that what is happening here?

$500? a dui is 4 times that. Hope I see him playing in the road.

Oh it gets better.... Reynolds was arrested on 9/10/13 for "Disorderly conduct." Bond for that charge was set at $1,200. He was released on 9/11/13, on his own recognizance. And now here he is arrested with 4 additional charges, and bond is set at $500. Mind blown! http://inmatelookup.co.dekalb.ga.us:8081/inmatelookup

I'd rather we build more jail's than pay for a new Falcons stadium.

My house was robbed Christmas Eve. I called the cops to give them the serial numbers off everything that was stolen and was told (after having to call 4 different numbers after the one they gave me on a business card was wrong)they had no record of the report and someone would call me back. That was 4 days ago. I was also told I had to track my items with a cop to the hood, where my iPad tracker led me. Awesome. I'm a single woman driving around the projects by myself, tracking my iPad and making myself essentially a sitting duck. I drive down there, and low and behold the cops say that even though I had the address etc listed, they could do nothing to help me. I'm disgusted. My faith in the justice system, and police is at level zero for Atlanta right now...

mamap~awesome! ~great staying on top of things; Tracey Long & Jeff Scott Wise~ I completely agree! Carley Connolly~I'm so sorry that you've been treated this way. After having contacted the police on 3 other occassions since moving here in August (with no response), we were told by the officers that responded to burglary/shooting on Hilburn DR the other day that we received such a great response because so many calls came in at the same time. We have to look out for each other.

I tried call the number listed all day with no answer, no answering machine. My house was robbed in October with no results as of yet from the serial numbers I had to mail into the station. Hopefully I will be able to eventually get through to someone and maybe get something recovered.
Keri Hartnett January 06, 2014 at 03:26 AM
I tried to call the number provided with no answer & I would like to get in touch with someone concerning this post.

Call 404/286-7990. That's DKPD South Precinct Criminal Investigation Division. Ask to speak to a burglary detective.

I have nothing to say to Dekalb police . The complete apathetic demeanor of every single officer that has ever "responded" to a emergency at my home as left me with out a care or respect for this counties government and police force. I did not want to sign in to some Facebook link to give my opinion. I will not support any government official or play any of the games. This needed to be addressed a long time ago and now that residents have had to use physical force towards these assailants puts all in a defensive position. My choice is to defend my property and NOT call a police department that won't lift a finger until the media gets involved. Then it's all of a sudden there number one priority. Leave your politics out of my personal safety, I WILL TAKE IT FROM HERE.
