ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some Albany apartment tenants are shaken up after a burglar vandalized and broke into several of the units where they live.

They say they've felt pretty safe there until now.

Around 12:30 Saturday morning, someone was trying to get into at least four apartments in the 1400 block of Palmyra Road.

Tracy Goodwin lives in one of the units.

"I sat up in bed and I said what are you doing out there, I mean I really screamed at them, and instead of leaving he knocked on the window, and I just told him he was crazy and to get out of here," said Tracy Goodwin.

She said when she went to look, she saw a man taking off the screen on her window.

The damage to other apartments is clearly visible, broken glass, mangled blinds, and ripped screens.

Jill Marlene was also a victim, the man tried to break the glass to the back door with this giant rock. He was unsuccessful.

"I heard a big huge loud noise and even the next door neighbor said she heard it," said Jill Marlene Trawick.

Trawick saw the suspicious man run off.

Neighbors say he also got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from one apartment.

Everyone in the community has been talking about what happened, like others here Goodwin is also shaken, but not enough to scare her away.

"It's my hometown and I don't want to go anywhere else, but I do think that more needs to be done about the crime situation," said Goodwin.

If you have any formation that could aid police in solving these burglaries call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS.
