Surveillance cameras must work

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Trouble with a burglary investigation has Dougherty County Police urging business owners to make sure their surveillance systems are working.

Around 1:30 Wednesday morning someone threw a brick through the front door at M&M food mart on the Liberty Expressway. The crook or crooks ransacked the store and stole several hundred dollars. The owner's have surveillance equipment, but they can't operate it to view the burglary.

"We run into it a lot, with the convenience stores. A lot of them will have the surveillance, which is good. But it doesn't do any good if you don't know how to operate it or don't have anybody that can operate it. It's pretty much useless then," said DCP Sgt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

Police and the District Attorney urge all businesses to update their video surveillance equipment, make sure it is in good working order, and have multiple cameras if they can.
