ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A break-in at an Albany business has the manager on guard. Thieves stole $2,500 worth of appliances in the latest heist. 

The manager at Wayne Frier Homes believes thieves may have targeted a doublewide for the second time. It's close to the woods and may be easier to disguise a dash to the back of the home where thieves broke in.

Manager, Travis Baker says the burglars stole the stove. In the process they ripped up the vinyl floor and left a long trail to their exit.

"I was pretty upset."I think it's the same people who came into the same house," said Baker.

Just last week they snagged the refrigerator out of the same home and furniture. The total value is $2,500.

"It cuts into your profit and it hurts your business tremendously," said Baker.

"It costs $1,200 along to fix these windows where the thieves broke into the home. The window frame is also bent. That will have to be replaced as well.

"It's not a very good time at all. The houses they hit are the better selling houses I have on my lot." said Baker.

He's already sold the home the thieves targeted along with a few others this month. The highend homes sell for about $80,000.

Now the new owner will have to come back to a home that's in need of a lot of repairs. Wayne Frier Homes will pay for repairs. Dougherty County Police are still searching for suspects. If you have any information regarding this burglary call crime stoppers at 436-TIPS.
