Northwest Albany business owner says more police needed

August 2, 2006

Albany -- Thieves stole three golf carts from the Battery Source on North Westover Boulevard Saturday night. They also damaged four other carts, joy riding behind the business, in full view of the Mall and the Bypass.

The three stolen golf carts were found abandoned Sunday, one at Tenth and Madison, miles from the store. Manager Jim Thompson believes kids tore down his fence and rode several golf carts until the batteries died.

Thompson said several other nearby businesses have been broken into and vandalized, and he says they need more Police Patrols. Battery Source Manager Jim Thompson said "About the only time you might see one on this side of town is if there is a wreck on this side of town. Or at night with the clubs on this side of town. Other than that during business hours you never hardly see them. "

Thompson said the business suffered about 25-hundred dollars damage, between the fence and cart repairs.
