As a way to say 'Job well done,' B. J. Fletcher of the Downtown Farm Market presented her thanks-- and a cake--  to Albany law enforcement Wednesday morning, for quickly catching a burglary suspect Tuesday.

Fletcher wanted to express her gratitude on behalf of the Downtown Farm Market and other downtown businesses after Cleveland Lockman was incarcerated after a Sunday break-in at the business.

Fletcher tells WALB news that merchants in the area will not let crime stop or slow the revitalization of the downtown district, and that their entrepreneurial spirit is strong.

APD officer Kalandria Peterson recognized Lockman on surveillance video, and tracked him down. He was arrested less than 48 hours after authorities say he broke into the business.

Also on hand were APD Captain Charlie Poole, and Lt. James Williams.
