Break-ins reported at businesses

ALBANY, Ga. — The Albany Police Department is investigating two recent break-ins that took place at two separate establishments along North Slappey Boulevard.

At 5:15 a.m. on Tuesday, a break-in was reported at the Enmark at 2800 N. Slappey Blvd. Officers responded to the location in reference to an active alarm after someone attempted to force their way in through a window.

Upon the APD’s arrival, officers learned that the weather stripping on the northwest window of the establishment had been removed from the glass. The glass was found shattered on the ground.

The report said that some items, primarily cigarettes, had been taken. As of Tuesday evening, no arrests had been made and the case remained under investigation.

At 5 p.m. Monday, a break-in was reported at 1206 N. Slappey Blvd., the location of Safety Max. Based on information in the report, the incident could have happened as early as Nov. 16.

In that case, police officials say an unknown person used a crowbar to pry open the front door of the warehouse and steal several items including Gatorade, dish detergent, paper towels, tissue and cleaning supplies.

APD officials said the incident is under investigation and that there are currently no known suspects.

Sounds like the Criminal was trying to clean up their act to me. You have to wonder what we do wrong as a society to create folks that believe it is OK to steal. Either they are raised wrong, or they do not have enough fear of getting caught and the consequances.

Very brave. Show little concern for police or anything else at these highly visible locations. Fear of possibly getting caught and possibly going to prison was clearly not there. It's not "poverty" and it's not unemployment--some people just ain't worth a damn and we have more than our share!

What kind of idiot risks going to jail over a pack of cigarettes?!

Stupid is as stupid does. They will get caught. Too bad they did not cut themselves badly to have to go to the hospital. But I have lived long enough to have learned what goes around, comes around.
