Same burglar hits East Albany convenience store again


For the second time this month a masked burglar breaks into an East Albany convenience store through a small window.

It's all caught on surveillance video.

Take a look at this guy wearing white pants and a jacket with a purple hood.

At 3:42 Sunday morning he breaks a plexi-glass window above the door of the Dixie Food Mart on East Broad Avenue and shimmies through the opening.

Then he runs straight to the counter and grabs about 500 dollars in cash and cigarettes.

The owner wants Police to do more to stop smash and grab burglaries.

"They are not like business friendly," said Henry Patel. "They try their best, but that's not enough for business person. That's the way I am thinking."

On October 2nd a man dressed exactly the same way broke into the store through that same window.

Patel plans to put burglar bars over the window.

If you can identify the man who broke in, Call Crime Stoppers at 436-tips.

You could earn a reward.
