An Albany business manager wants gang members to stop targeting businesses.

He says for the second time in a year gangsters vandalized his business.

A huge rock was thrown through the front door of Mr. Transmission on West Broad Avenue overnight.

The crooks ransacked a couple of offices, but all they took was a book of checks with the company name on them and a gumball machine.

The manager says it's gang members earning status in their gang.

Mr. Transmission General Manager Dennis Gilbert said  "Once or twice a year the gangs, to boost themselves up in rank, have to go in and vandalize a business and get proof that they had been in the business."

Gilbert says the vandals did about $1200 in damage.
