Thieves target restaurant patrons

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A northwest Albany restaurant owner is beefing up security after crooks again targeted cars in his parking lot Thursday night.  Thieves rifled through at least two cars near Harvest Moon.

Owner Bo Henry is installing surveillance cameras outside Harvest Moon and The Catch nearby. The cars targeted last night belonged to employees and weren't locked. Henry says that's a lesson learned.

But he's still angry that some people think it's okay to steal.

"It's definitely frustrating," Henry said. "People are coming here to have dinner and enjoy themselves. We don't want them to have to worry about their car being messing with while they're here. That's why we're doing everything we can to make it a safe environment for people to be in."

Some CDs... a car stereo... and other items were taken. An employee spotted two young men walking through the parking lot looking through cars. Police found those men nearby. They were questioned and released.
