Albany business owners ponder move due to repeated crime


The owners of a family-run Albany business are considering moving after 30 years in the same location, because of repeated crime.

About 9 Saturday night Patricia Kalkavouras and her brother found the garage at USA Restaurant Equipment on Haley Street broken into. More than five thousand dollars worth of chain saws, air compressors, tools, and saw blades were stolen. This is the third time their business has been burglarized since December, and the family says crime may force them to move.

"I think I'm going to sell out and get out, said Kalkavouras." It's that bad? "I mean, I have been retired three years ago. I don't know. I don't know why I should keep up with all of that aggravation."

The business owners say the same building was broken into two weeks ago, and they believe the same thief came back, breaking in through another door this time.
