Smash-and-grabbers steal booze, smokes

September 18, 2007

Albany -- Two masked men smashed their way into a Dougherty County convenience store early Tuesday and stole beer and cigarettes, and it's all on videotape.

Surveillance Video supplied by Dougherty County Police shows two men with a concrete block smashed the front door of the Fast Lane store on Sylvester Road just before 3:30AM.

They ran behind the counter, grabbed cigarettes, cigar wrappers and beer, and took off. They were in and out in just 30 seconds.

They were wearing hoods with their faces covered, and shared one pair of gloves, one had one glove on his left hand, the other man had the right hand glove.

Store employees say they are sure it's the same two men who broke into their store in May.

"It's a continuing problem. We've had this over the years, and it's continued to be a problem. As you can see they are in and out in less than a minute," says Dougherty County Police Capt. Jimmy Sexton

So far Police have made no arrests. If you have any information on these burglars, call CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS. There could be a reward for information.
