ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Four burglaries in eastern Dougherty County Monday have Police warning people to keep a close eye on suspicious people in their neighborhoods.

Burglars stole about 8-thousand dollars in items from homes on Moultrie Road, Sylvester Road, Antioch Road, and Spurlock Street. They took mostly T-V's and computers.

Dougherty County Police say they do not believe the burglaries were related, because they were all broken into differently.   But they want people to be on alert, and record the serial numbers of their electronic items.

Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said  "take pictures, take video of your items. Keep it in a safe place. So we can try to locate these items if they are stolen."

The Worth County Sheriff's Office is investigating several burglaries in the western portion of that county. Dougherty County Police are working to see if they were done by the same crooks.
