Albany -- You better behave in Albany. If you break the law, it could cost you more.

Tuesday night, Albany City Commissioners approved an increase in the fines for criminal and traffic violators.

The fines will increase for first, second, and third offenses. It's the first increase in Albany Municipal Court fines in eight years.

Commissioners hope the increase will help curb crime in Albany.
