APD investigating burglary

ALBANY -- Burglars and armed robbers kept Albany Police Department officers investigating in the early hours of Tuesday.

Two burglars smashed their way through a concrete wall into a Stop-N-Shop at 1711 Clark Ave. before 3 a.m. Tuesday, a police report stated.

The men entered the convenience store and stole an undetermined amount of music CDs, said Phyllis Banks, police spokeswoman. The duo fled before police arrived, she added.

"The officer at the scene got a look at the surveillance video from the store manager," Banks said. "That is how we got the descriptions."

Police are searching for two black men in their early 20s in connection with the burglary, Banks said. One wore a red ski mask, a camouflage jacket and blue jeans during the burglary, she said.

The other man had on a black, sweat jacket and a red ball cap, Banks said.

In other thefts, a man with a handgun demanded money from a victim on the 700 block of Mobile Ave. at about 3:40 a.m., a police report stated. He got no money but fled with car keys and a cell phone, the report added.

A man wielded a knife on the 2200 block of East Oglethorpe at about 1:50 a.m., a police report stated. That thief took car keys from his victim and ran, the report added.

Anyone with additional information about these incidents should call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477) or (229) 431-3288.
