Albany-- Police may be close to naming suspects in a rash of armed robberies. "I can't same exactly when we will get an arrest," said ADA Greg Edwards. "But I feel confident an arrest will be made in this case."
One of the families robbed at gunpoint says city leaders must help improve police coverage.
While people in Northwest Albany are stepping up their fight against criminals, police may soon make some arrests. Police now have the stolen car used in the Lake Park holdups and prosecutors think arrests are imminent.
The neighborhood watch group in the Lake Park community, where two families were robbed by three masked gunmen, is offering a three thousand dollar reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
Victims Mike and Mandy Flynn says the crimes made them realize Albany needs more police protection, and they're taking their concerns to city commissioners.
"We're going to demand to know from the Mayor and the council why in a $77 Million budget they can't find the funding to get us to a 100% staffing on a police force. Public safety is a basic function of a city government, and these guys better get it together," said Mike Flynn.
The armed robbery spree began Friday morning around 2:30 when gunmen robbed a man on Firestone Drive and stole his Lincoln Towncar. An hour later, masked gunmen robbed a man outside his 9th Avenue home.
Then Friday night around 8:00, the stolen car was used in the Lake Park robberies on Partridge and Flamingo Lane.
