Albany -- Metal thefts continue to plague South Georgia businesses.  An East Albany automobile repair shop has more than $5000 worth of parts stolen.

Cast iron engine heads, a tractor crank shaft, several aluminum engine intakes, and batteries were stolen overnight Wednesday from A and D Engine Rebuilders on Krug Street. It was several days before owners realized how many parts had been stolen.

The owner contacted salvage metal yards to be on the look out, but with no luck. A&D Engine Rebuilders owner Jim Wheeler said "five or six thousand dollars worth of stuff to replace, and they probably got 30 or 40 dollars for what they took. Yea, I would have gladly paid 30 or 40 dollars if I could get it back."

Wheeler said because metal thieves are getting bolder, he will increase the security around his business to safeguard it.
