The Atlanta Police Department is investigating the theft of six sets of keys and two vehicles from the valet at a Buckhead hotel over the weekend.
According to a police report, officers ware called to the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel & Conference Center on Lenox Road March 9 at about 4:29 a.m. by the valet attendant, Brandon Walker. He said six sets of keys were stolen from the valet’s key box and two vehicles were taken from the parking garage.
“Mr. Walker stated that he noticed a black Jeep Grand Cherokee driving suspiciously throughout the property,” an officer wrote in his report. “Once the valet manager, Mr. Babajide Oloyede, arrived on scene, I was able to review the surveillance footage. While watching the footage I notice at approximately 4:03 a.m. a black male wearing a red hoodie, red shoes and blue jeans, get out of the passenger seat of the black Jeep Grand Cherokee and force entry into the valet key box with a screwdriver.
“The unknown male took possession of a number of keys and got back into the vehicle. The suspects also took two vehicles from the parking garage, which were later recovered. At the time of the incident, Mr. Walker was not on scene at the key box. The suspect vehicle (the black Jeep) was also stolen out of East Point.”
Officers wrote in their report they were unable to recover any quality fingerprints from the valet key box.
The vehicles whose keys were stolen were reportedly towed to a safe place until their owners could retrieve them. No suspects have been arrested as of March 11, according to police.
