ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Albany men are arrested just hours after a break-in at an Albany non-profit sexual abuse center.

Police recovered $12,000 worth of stolen computer and video equipment just a block away.

Employees of the Lily Pad found their back door pried open this morning just after eight o'clock.

The sexual assault and children advocacy center's offices on West Second Avenue were ransacked.

Five computers and video recording equipment were stolen.

Just before noon Police arrested 32-year old Terry Roberson and 27-year old Trentravious Irvin in the 200 block of First Avenue and recovered the stolen property in a vacant house there.

Executive Director Karen Kemp said "This has been lean times for us. But we have a wonderful board of directors. And this is a very supportive community. People who understand our mission. We feel very strongly they will help us get back rolling again and operating."

The only equipment not recovered was one computer hard drive.

No client records were compromised.

Lily Pad officials hope to resume normal operations in the next few days.
