Authorities say that they have seen this sort of thing before. The way someone got inside at least two Albany buildings is strangely reminiscent of the way a crook entered other buildings a few years ago.

It wasn't very clever, but it was effective; the criminal just peeled the metal away from the building frame, and got inside.

But as we'll hear from Jim Wallace later today, the crook may have allowed himself to be captured on surveillance video.

We have obtained the video from the video system inside South Crane Service on Don Cutler Senior drive, which is near the Liberty Bypass.

The same method of entry was used to get inside the Girl's Inc. building over the weekend.
