ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany City Officials say they have found no evidence of theft at the airport, following the arrest of it's Deputy Director two weeks ago.  

Kevin Harper was arrested September 4th by Dougherty County Sheriff's Office, as he was stealing hundreds of dollars worth of Polo Shirts from Dillard's at the Albany Mall, where he worked part time as a security guard.

Harper was the deputy director of the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport, in charge of the security forces.

Following his arrest, City officials immediately launched an investigation to see if any property at the airport was missing. 

"Through his office, as well as the various financial records, checkbooks, etc. And have found nothing unusual whatsoever," said Albany Assistant City Manager Wes Smith.

Harper remains suspended with pay following his arrest.
