Neighbors fight burglars

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  People in one Dougherty County neighborhood are taking extra precautions to protect their homes from burglars.

Sabrina McClendon returned home from work yesterday to find her home on Elizabeth Avenue had been broken into.

The thieves stole a gun, a laptop computer, jewelry, a digital camera, and clothes, about four thousand dollars worth of items. 

"I have someone coming out today to install a security system, I have renters insurance which is a good thing, and I don't know what else I'm going to do. But a security system is going to make me feel a whole lot safer," said McClendon.

McClendon is also thinking about getting a guard dog. Dougherty County police are checking another neighbor's security cameras for any possible leads on a suspect.
