Crime Watch President John Bailey says that it is a start, but no one is letting their guard down just yet.
 
Condo buildings have added extra security and some have held public safety meetings. Everyone is keeping their eyes out for the couple.

Anthony Shorter says he has spread the word about this couple through social media sites. He says all the neighbors have been spreading the word as well. He is hoping police will catch them both soon.

In the past couple of days since the robberies occurred, people who live around the Buckhead area have joined forces. They have been sharing information about the robberies and keeping an eye out for each other. They are hoping it is that information which will eventually bring them to justice.
