ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Five guns were stolen Thursday in two home burglaries in Albany.

On the east side on Sandlewood Circle, someone entered a back gate and smashed the glass on the back door to gain entry into this home while the homeowner was out of town. A neighbor saw the gate open and called police Thursday morning. Police say the home was ransacked and among the items stolen were a 9 millimeter handgun and an antique rifle. Police say it's time for neighbors to take a stand.

"We all live here in Dougherty County, this is our community and I'm actively asking every citizen of Dougherty County if they can take an active role in helping us in policing these streets," said Cpl. Terrance Bryant, Albany Police Department.

That homeowner came home Thursday afternoon.  Albany Police say they never want a citizen to approach a suspect breaking into a neighbor's home, but they do want them to call police. They should also notice details such as what the the suspects look like, what kind of car they're driving, or a license plate number.
