Burglars target store for third time this year

October 8, 2007

Dougherty County  -- Thieves smash into a Dougherty County Convenience store for the third time since May, and Police and store employees say they suspect it's the same two masked men.

The Fast Lane store on Sylvester Road was again targeted by two masked men about 3:30 Monday morning.  Store employees say video surveillance from this burglary looks exactly like the break-in that took place September 18th.

Two masked men smash the front door with a concrete block, then dash behind the counter, grabbing about 300 dollars worth of cigarettes, cigar wrappers, candy, and an 18 pack of beer. Employees say they did 300 dollars damage to the door.

If you have any information about these store burglaries on Sylvester Road, call the Dougherty County Police or CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.  There could be a reward offered.
