Albany -- At least three Albany businesses located in a one-mile stretch were burglarized within a 24-hour time span.

The Albany Police Department first responded to a burglary at Uniforms by Julie on Palmyra Road around 6 Friday morning.

Less than 24 hours later, around 11PM at TLC Drugs on Seventh Avenue, the front door was smashed and set off the security system. But the burglars didn't get away with much. An old, empty cash register was taken from the pharmacy.

APD was dispatched again about 20 minutes later to a store called Sweet dreams, just one mile down the road from the pharmacy on Palmyra Road.

Several recent burglaries have raised concern among area business owners. "With all the recent burglaries we've had in Albany I would impress upon business owners to double check their security systems, have them upgraded, have them serviced. Double check their contracts, maybe need to add some stuff," said TLC Drugs Owner Thomas McSwain.**)

Thomas McSwain of TLC Drugs says it seems the best way to ever catch these criminals is for business owners to up security, investing in security cameras to identify crooks.
