EAST ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police need you help in identifying a burglary suspect. Officers were called out to the Dollar General on in the 1900 block of East Oglethorpe Blvd. on the afternoon of March 31st.

An employee told investigators someone had entered the store around 2:30 that afternoon and stole money from the store's safe.

Surveillance video shows a black man wearing dark clothing and a black trilby hat walking around the store before he entered an office area where the safe was located.

About 30 seconds later, cameras captured the suspect walking out of the office. He left the store on foot with an undetermined amount of money.

This crime took place at the same Dollar General held up by the Bandana Bandit in July. Surveillance video also captured a thief snatching money from a cash register at this store in February.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Albany Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS.
