Man steals hospital van, burglarizes nearby business

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomasville Police are looking for a man they say took a van from one place and broke into another.

Police want answers after someone took an Archbold Memorial Hospital van that was being repaired at a maintenance location and drove it across the street to commit another crime.

"We haven't made an arrest yet, so if anybody has seen a yellow Archbold van during the early morning hours over the weekend, notify us," said investigator Lt. Wade Glover.

Officials believe the crook took the van then, went across the street, and burglarized Trident Metal. "They pulled the metal siding off of the back side of the building, and entered and got the metal, scrap metal, and wiring, and obviously used the truck to transport the items," said Glover.

It's similar to two recent break-ins at Johnson's Grocery Store in Dixie. Each time, the suspect stole a City of Thomasville truck and used it to try to rip their way into the business.

The van used in this latest crime was discovered Monday morning behind a business on West Jackson Street.

"Maybe someone approached them trying to get them to buy some copper wire. Please contact police," said Glover.

All it takes is a quick phone call that could get a crook off the streets and keep them from committing another crime.
