Fulton County is looking for solutions to a wave of carjackings and robberies at some of its gas stations.

The crimes have been especially bad in the southern end of the county. One gas station there had more than 70 incidents last year.

To combat the thefts, county commissioners considered two different long term proposals Wednesday —one from the county chief of police and the other from the district attorney.

Both involve setting up a multi-jurisdiction group of police officers from the county and cities like Atlanta and College Park.
