ATLANTA — A series of high-profile home invasions, burglaries and robberies led to a weeklong Atlanta police sweep that brought 246 arrests — and put 100 convicted felons back in custody.
The department's gang unit, auto theft task force and other specialized teams were mobilized, setting up traffic safety checkpoints and flooding high-crime areas in the city for seven days, starting Dec. 7, Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said.
