ALBANY, Ga. -- Two more area businesses became burglary victims, one of which recently opened its doors.
The Downtown Farm Market at 106 N. Washington St., which opened in late April, was broken into between 12:30-12:52 p.m. on Sunday.
Forced entry was achieved through the rear door. The only thing reportedly taken was cash.
Owner Bruce Young provided a statement to law enforcement, an Albany Police Department report indicated.
"(Bruce) Young reported that an unknown person entered the rear of the business," said Phyllis Banks, spokeswoman for the APD. "Once inside, two money bags containing an undetermined amount of money was taken."
A suspect description was given. The culprit, who had not been identified as of the filing of the report, was described as a black male about six feet tall and weighing approximately 150 pounds.
He was wearing glasses.
In another incident, officers responded to a break-in at 1204 Greenvale Road at 4:25 a.m. on Monday. The location, which was identified as a Mediacom facility, was forced into via the front door.
"Upon the officer's arrival, they discovered that someone entered the location without permission or authority by the point of entry." Banks said.
