ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   We have surveillance video from the Albany Police Department to show you of the 'well groomed bandit' who smashed into an Albany Dollar General Wednesday, and stole only toothpaste and deodorant.

Around 2:30 AM, the man was caught by surveillance video taking off his red shirt and then tying it around his face for a mask.

Then he throws a rock through the glass front door of the Dollar General at 1109 West Broad.

He dashed through the hole and goes right to the front shelf where he steals only personal items, taking some toothpaste and deodorant before running away.

He drops a lot of the items outside and stops to put them back into his bag.

If you have any information about this well groomed bandit, call CRIME STOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS. You could earn a reward.
