Albany Habitat headquarters broken into

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A thief causes $500 in damage breaking into an Albany non-profit headquarters, and it's all caught on tape.

About 11:30 Tuesday night this man threw a cinder block through the front door of the Flint River Habitat for Humanity office on Pine Avenue.

Alarms went off. The thief grabbed a bubble gun machine and ran off.

Replacing the glass in that door cost Habitat $500  this morning.

It's the fourth time Habitat has been broken into since November.

Flint River Habitat Executive Director Stacey Driggers said  "It's just a lot of trauma and trouble. We're trying to do good in the community, and this kind of crime is not helpful for anybody."

Habitat officials say donations are down while requests for help are up during the bad economy, so this crime hits hard.

If you can identify the thief, call Albany Police at 431-2100.
