Crime was lower in the City of Lithonia in October than in September, the acting police chief told the city council this week.
In his report on Monday, Xavier Todd said there were 13 incidents in October compared to 32 in September. Of the two investigations underway, one involves a person who left the scene of a vehicle accident where a utility pole was hit, causing an electrical outage. Todd said after leaving the scene, the person called police to say he'd been carjacked.
