The Buckhead Coalition is offering a $5,000 reward for information related to two home invasions in the community.

The coalition, a business group, is putting up the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved in a Jan. 31 home invasion on Randall Mill Road and a May 26 home invasion on Paces Ridge Road.

“Although no major physical harm occurred in either incident,” the coalition said in a press release, “these crimes are distressing to surrounding neighborhoods.”

Coalition president Sam Massell praised Atlanta police for their response to the crimes. “It is of paramount importance to the public safety of those who live, visit, work, and play in this community that such heinous criminal behavior be vigilantly protected against,” Massell said in the release.
