Thomasville Crisis Center burglarized


A south Georgia police department is cautioning construction workers to take better care of their tools after a weekend burglary.

Police say several hundred dollars worth of power tools and a bottle of Xanax pills were taken from the former Phoenix Rehab Center in Thomasville.

Police say the thief or thieves broke a window on the north side of the building to get in. A construction crew is currently working to remodel the building.

"We advise citizens in the community, if you are going to have tools at construction sites, please secure them in the building with a lock and key to make it difficult for thieves," said Thomasville Police Lt. Eric Hampton.

Police say the Xanax did belong to one of the construction workers. The building will soon be one of three new south Georgia behavioral health crisis stabilization centers.
