ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For the fourth time this year, thieves have broken into a number of storage units at a Northwest Albany warehouse business.

Wednesday morning the owners found that thieves had broken into 17 storage units at the Royal Storage in the 2800 block of Palmyra Road.

Mostly electronics, computers, and TV's were stolen from several of the units. Police are investigating, and warn you to watch out for people selling these stolen items.

Albany Police Spokesperson Phyllis Banks Whitley said "Anyone who might think they are getting a good deal on something that they purchase off the street, there is a charge that goes with that, and it's called theft by receiving. So if you think you are getting something for a good deal, you may want to think twice about purchasing it."

Police say the estimated value of the stolen items is around $2000, but the unit renters are still checking what is missing. Royal Storage owners were installing new security equipment Thursday.
