ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Three North Albany businesses were burglarized by several men walking down railroad tracks late Thursday night.

Crawford and Sons Oil on West Third Avenue was burglarized for the second time in three nights.

At least three men used a sledgehammer to smash open a back door.

They stole computer equipment, money, and a heater.

Thieves also smashed their way in Oxford Construction and Bennett's Feed Store and stole items from both businesses.

The owners say they're frustrated by crime. 

 "We don't know what to do about it. We just keep going. We can't quit working, just because people are breaking in and doing things that they shouldn't do," said Bennett's Feed Store employee Wayne Dupree.

All three businesses fixed the damage today and fortified the broken doors with heavy locks and bars.
