ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Another Albany storage warehouse business has been broken into, and Albany Police think the same thief or thieves is responsible.

This time it was the South Slappey Mini Storage on South Slappey. 24 units were found with the doors broken Monday morning. The crooks cut a hole in the back

fence sometime late Saturday or Sunday, and broke into the units by breaking the locking units. Owner Keith Henderson said the units were ransacked, but two old televisions were all that were taken. But the thieves did thousands of dollars in damage to the warehouses.

Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks Whitley said "Mostly they have not been able to take a lot of items. A lot of items have not been stolen, but the damage is substantial."

Last week Royal Storage on Philema Road was broken into, and 25 units ransacked. Police were concerned that a number of guns were taken from one unit in that theft. A Mann's storage unit off Slappey was also broken into the day before.
