Atlanta Police are searching for the thieves who stole keys from a valet lock box and drove off with two luxury cars. According to CBS46, the incident occurred late Thursday night at Ecco restaurant on 7th Street in Midtown.  Three sets of keys were taken, but only a BMW and Land Rover were stolen. Police and restaurant management are looking at surveillance camera footage to see if they can spot the thieves in action.

The so-called “religious freedom” bill has stalled at the State Capitol after an amendment was added to include anti-discrimination language. According to The Georgia Voice, the amendment was proposed by Rep. Mike Jacobs (R-Brookhaven), who stated that he was inundated with calls and emails from constituents concerned about the bill’s effects. The bill was tabled, putting serious doubt on whether it would advance to the House floor before the end of the session. The controversial bill has prompted outcry from the LGBT community, religious leaders and businesses concerned about the broad language of the bill and what unintended consequences it might have.
