ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Sheriff's investigators need your help to find a man they believe caused a half million dollars worth of damage to a business.

Investigators say 43-year-old Willie James Harrison is shown on surveillance video selling metal stolen from Flint River Services earlier this month.

They say when the suspects, seen on the video, stole the wire, they did hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to refrigeration units. 

"You're talking labor costs, you're talking replacement costs and you're talking the cost of the actual pipe itself, so you're talking a great deal of expense to replace this," said Capt. Craig Dodd of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.

In a separate case, 41-year-old Jerome David Davis was expected to turn himself in at the sheriff's office Thursday.

He's charged with theft by receiving stolen property for stealing steel from Flint River Services.

The copper was only worth about a thousand dollars.
