ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Marvin Baptiste wasn't the only property owner in court Thursday. Eugene McCoy, who owns property on North Jackson street, was brought in to address code problems on the building.

He says he's spent $30,000 on renovations only to have thieves rip the building apart and steal copper wiring and other materials. He says he can't continue to do the same work without police protection.

"I will spend more money on it if they'll give me police protection. If they'll put somebody over there to guarantee me that they'll protect my property, yeah I'll fix it up," he said. McCoy was given until August 28th to present a detailed plan for his property, though he says he just wants to sell the building, his home and business and leave Albany behind.
