Burglar caught in the act

January 26, 2007

Thomasville-- Police responded to an alarm set off at Lowe's around 11:30 Wednesday night. They found 31 year-old Perry Cooper leaving a back entrance of the store. 

Cooper told police he was a security guard for the store.  "Through a little further checking that Lowe's doesn't even have, didn't have a security guard working up there that night, they found some power tools that he had put in a buggy," said Sgt. Ricky Singletary of the Thomasville Police Department.

Police say they think Cooper was going to try to sell the power tools. He was arrested and charged with burglary.
