Michael's Barbeque burglar caught on camera

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A masked burglar causes hundreds of dollars in damage to an Albany restaurant, and it was caught on camera.

The man broke through the drive-thru window at Michael's Barbeque on Gillionville Road just after midnight Tuesday morning.

The manager thinks this is a teenager.

After crawling in, he checks the cash registers and ransacks the office.

The burglar also tried to destroy the video surveillance equipment.

The alarm was sounding, so the bandit was in and out quickly.

"Did about $500 worth of damage at least," said manager Jim Tippins. "In under 4 minutes." What did he steal? "Two fist fulls of quarters. So maybe $10 total."

If you think you know who that burglar is, you could earn a reward.  Call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
