Discount store burglarized

ALBANY -- Two men are still at large after a burglary in north Albany over the weekend.

Two armed black males, possibly in their twenties, broke into Fred's at 1001 N. Slappey Blvd. just after 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

The suspects were said to have entered the store with their faces covered.

They approached the cashier and began demanding money from the registers.

The two grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from the drawer and then fled the scene on foot.

Several customers were inside the business when the incident occurred. No injuries were reported.

"This case remains under investigation and updates will be provided as additional information becomes available for release," said Albany Police Department spokeswoman Phyllis Banks in a release to the media.

When contacted about the incident Monday, Banks said there were no new developments to report.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the APD at (229) 431-2100 or Crime Stoppers at (229)436-TIPS.

Crime Stoppers will not require giving a name, just information. Those that utilize it could be eligible for a cash reward.
