ATLANTA, Ga. — Even amongst the crowd of cars circling in search of parking spots, the two vehicles stationed outside the Macy's at Lenox Square mall store stood out.
The cars had their hoods up, and every few minutes, several men walked back and forth between them.
And when mall security cameras zeroed in Monday night, they stumbled on a surprising find, police said: a drug transaction in plain view at one of the region's biggest and busiest shopping destinations.
Atlanta police, who were called in, arrested six people and seized two handguns and several pounds of marijuana from the bust at the Buckhead mall, said Officer Ronald Campbell.
