Disabled Albany man hit twice by thieves

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Thieves broke into a disabled Albany man's home for the second time in a matter of days. This time the bold criminals hit while he was asleep in another room.

Steven Wells and his roommate Byron Alday say thieves broke into the back porch some time Saturday night and raided a freezer full of groceries. They also went through their pantry.

This is the second time their home has been broken into. We first reported last week that two safes full of cash, checks and bank statements were stolen from their home. Both say they are sick of all this crime.

"While you are sleeping in your house suppose to be safe, burglars are stealing your stuff while you are sleeping. That's kind of scary," said Byron Alday.

"Where is the neighborhood watch? Where is the justice in Dougherty County? This is the second time this week," said Steven Wells.

They are now pleading for anyone who knows or saw anything suspicious around their home in the 1600 block of Beverly Avenue to call police.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 229-436-TIPS. You can remain anonymous and your tip could lead to a reward.
