ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany car dealers have been complaining about crimes on their lots, and Monday night, police caught a car break-in suspect.  

About 11:00PM, police saw 43-year-old Willie Harrison, Junior in a car at David Smith Auto Land. He took off, but officers caught him nearby. Police found seven cars at the dealership had been broken into.

Harrison is now charged with seven counts of entering auto and criminal trespass.

Police say they stepped up patrols at car dealerships to try to cut down on car thefts and break-ins.

Harrison was also recently charged with stealing copper wiring from Flint River Services. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage was done to the refrigeration units.
