Habitat thieves scared away

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -     Neighborhood Watch members in the Flint River Habitat for Humanity community saved the non-profit from thieves.

Sunday afternoon people who live in the Woodland Oaks Subdivision scared off thieves who were breaking into the Habitat tool trailer.

You can see where thieves tried to pry open the door on the huge materials trailer at the Habitat build site on Willow Oak Drive.

People who live in the neighborhood called Police and scared away the crooks before they could steal anything.

Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Stacey Odom Driggers said "The people all out here are watching more, because they know it benefitted them to have their houses built. And they are trying to make sure the houses get built for their neighbors."

Thieves broke into these Habitat equipment trailers three times in the last year, but they credit the neighborhood watch for better protection.
