VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –It's the busy season for burglars.

Over the weekend, burglars in Valdosta hit doctors' offices, a convenience store, and a retail store.

An undisclosed amount of money was stolen from the Lane Bryant Department store in the mall.

Police say burglars know retailers carry more cash this time of year.

"Ask for an escort to go to the bank, or we can take you to the bank," said Valdosta Police Officer Vernotis Williams. "We ask that you don't leave any kind of money in the cash register or drawer or any area that's known to hold money."

Police say business owners need to keep their shops well-lit and have an alarm. 

A Valdosta Mall spokesperson says throughout the holiday season, they continually re-evaluate their security measures to keep shoppers and workers safe.
