Vandals target Dougherty county mobile homes

June 25, 2007

Albany--Some brave vandals stole thousands of dollars worth of furniture from a mobile home business in Dougherty County this past weekend.

Late Sunday night thieves targeted three furnished trailers at the Wayne Frier Home Center located on 3006 Sylvester Road.

They took six sofas, two refrigerators, sseveral small tables, as well as lamps and wall pictures.

The general manager estimates his loss at $11,000.

Dougherty County police spent this morning dusting for fingerprints but have no suspects at this time.

Employees say over the past two years thieves have targeted their mobile homes six times.

"We were shocked. I'm just trying to understand how people can just come up on the lot and wipe out your houses over the weekend," says Regina Danales, and employee.

"How in the world can somebody just come in here and get all this furniture. They had to knew they were coming. They had to have some sort of huge truck to do all this," says Thomas Riddell, the general manager.

The last time vandals struck the business, they stole several big screen televisions.

If you have any information on this most recent act of vandalism, you're asked to call Dougherty County police.
