ALBANY, GA (WALB) -With a little more than a week until Christmas, thieves are on the prowl. Police are too.

Albany Police conducted rolling road blocks in Northwest Albany to protect neighborhoods and try to catch criminals.

Police were making sure people had current tags and registration. They were also looking out for  people who were drinking and driving or in possession of drugs.

It was a success. They made a $1,000 pot bust. Neighbors say the strong police presence gives them peace of mind.

 "I think it's great because it makes my family and I feel safer," said neighbor, Brian Bowman.

If you see someone or something suspicious in your neighborhood call 911. If it's not an emergency you can call 311.
