ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's some victory for an Albany car dealer in his constant battle against thieves.
Despite surveillance cameras and motion detectors, Uncle Robert's Used Car Dealership seems to be a consistent target. Bold thieves have stolen everything from expensive vehicles to golf clubs from the business. This weekend, one thief didn't get too far.
Danny McDonald is fed up with criminals. "They have to jump the fence. They have to go through barbed wire. I just don't know why they pick me," said McDonald.
Thieves continue to target his used car lot on West Oglethorpe. You name it, they've stolen it. "Cars, radios, everything," said McDonald.
In surveillance video from just a few weeks ago, you can see where in broad daylight two bold thieves jumped into McDonald's own personal BMW and took off from the lot. Another thief met his match this weekend.
"Saturday afternoon, they picked the wrong person," said McDonald.
McDonald actually met 52-year-old William Jones earlier in the day as a customer. "He and a girlfriend came in that afternoon and bought a car in the lady's name," said McDonald. But that wasn't enough for Jones.
"Came back that evening to steal something and we caught him," said McDonald.
He was caught red-handed stealing aluminum cans and rods from a shed--most likely for quick cash. "Just happened to spot him out of the corner of my eye in the back of the building," said McDonald.
McDonald quickly called 911 and it didn't take long for them to show up. "And they were all over him and got him quick," said McDonald. Jones was hiding underneath the storage shed. When he saw police, he took off running. After a short pursuit, he was caught and arrested.
"I'm tickled to death that I got him. And we'll get another one and we'll get another one. Like I said six months ago, eight months ago, we're going to get them," said McDonald.
McDonald is determined to keep getting them, but he also hopes they don't keep getting him.
Jones is in the Dougherty County Jail and he's charged with criminal trespassing.
