ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A group of Albany business owners are trying to figure out why their stores were targeted by vandals Saturday.

Police were called to at least three businesses on Albany's east side where windows were shattered, causing thousands of dollars in damages.

RuBo's manager showed us where vandals damaged his compressor and broke two front windows at the Clark Avenue store.

A church a few doors down had its door broken.

One street over on East Broad, Albany Pet Partners had their front door shattered with a rock.

"Any damage is serious because to replace the glass is $200 plus the aggravation," Dr. Fred Freeland, Albany Pet Partners.

"I found both windows busted out, a couple of pipes were lying on the ground that were used to do it," said William Phillips, RuBo's Manager.

Phillips says he wants to see more frequent police patrols in the area. If you know anything about the weekend vandalism, call Albany Police.
