ALBANY — Detectives from the Albany Police Department are still looking for two individuals believed to have stolen several items from a business in south Albany earlier this month.

Reports from the Albany Police Department show there was a burglary at Dollar General, 1824 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, between midnight and 1 a.m. on Jan. 11. A narrative from the report says police were called out in reference to a shattered window in the front door of the business. Found in front of the door was a towel and a pack of Hanes T-shirts, and there were several aisles in the store that had been disturbed.

The investigation revealed that a brick had been used to break the window, with the items being taken including the Hanes T-shirts, Realtree T-shirts, Suave deodorant and several Georgia Bulldog sweatshirts. The report’s narrative indicates the Hanes shirts, along with the towel, brick, latent print cards, a CD and a DVD are among the things that were taken as evidence in the case.

The narrative goes on to say the officers made contact with the manager of the store, who together reviewed surveillance footage showing two men breaking the window and entering several times while stealing merchandise. Both of them were black males, with one wearing a black jacket and dark jeans and the other wearing khaki pants, a red sweatshirt and black shoes with white laces.

Individuals with any information on the crime or the suspects should call Albany Area Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477) or APD investigators at (229) 431-3288.
