Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
Albany city commissioners are scheduled to vote on whether to renew the alcohol licenses of two clubs where police say they've dealt with recurring problems. Three other bars anxiously await their turn for a hearing.
Club Xscape and Charley B's are two of five bars in Albany that are on the verge of losing their alcohol licenses.
Police are recommending that action because they say they respond to so many calls at these businesses.
"We brought it to the commission's attention in December, when the bulk renewals come up. This time we submitted what we thought was enough to at least grant a hearing," said Nathan Davis, the Albany city attorney.
While city commissioners have had other alcohol revocation hearings in the past, this is the most they've had at once. And city officials say it's all to keep citizens safe.
"Protect public health, safety and welfare. And make sure people are compliant with the alcohol code, all of those type things," said Davis.
Gregory Robinson, who lives behind Club Xscape, says he hasn't had any problems with the nightclub. "Yeah that would hurt business. Like I said we stay in the back and we don't have no problem out of them. Me nor my neighbors had no problems with them," said Robinson.
Hearings were held last week for Club Xscape and Charley B's.
Police testified saying minors have been caught on the property at Club Xscape. And that people were injured in fights at Charley B's.
Commissioners will vote on these renewals during Tuesday night's commission meeting.
Sandtrap Lounge and Club, Big Daddy's Lounge and Club and Legend Lounge and Club are also in danger of losing their alcohol licenses. Hearings for those three will be held January 29th.
