ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Northwest Albany neighborhood comes together to fight crime, after a couple of recent burglaries.

There have been two burglaries in the last two weeks on Hilltop Drive. Neighbors spotted two men in a green or blue mustang committing the last one.

Neighbors were alerted, and Thursday morning a car and men matching the description were spotted back in the same neighborhood. Police took them in for questioning.

Tom Wilburn said "We know about teamwork. We know about helping out, when others need help. So that's what we kinda have done, we watched out for our neighbors and friends."

Police say they are still investigating, and have not filed any charges yet.
