Albany police investigators are back on the scene of yet another overnight break-in of a business.

This time, the Consumer Credit Counseling Service, across from the Albany Towers was hit by one or more criminals.

They broke out a window, and got inside, but it seems that a burglar alarm scared off the intruders, who left without taking anything.

Business owners say they never keep any money in the office, and there really wasn't anything to steal. They had to have the window replaced, at a cost of $125.00.

Albany business owners are telling WALB that they are frustrated with the senselessness of these crimes, which yield little payoff, but cost major dollars to fix.

Just before 2:00 AM Monday, a masked bandit broke into Southway Cranes on Don Cutler Drive.

He stole money from the coke machine. It was exactly like a break in there three years ago.

Workers at the Boys and Girl's Club and Girl's Inc. East Albany Center on Inverness Drive found two vending machines and two bubblegum machines broken into the same day.
