ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

New this morning, a thief caught in the act of a smash and grab. Albany Police are investigating an East Albany business that was broken into, one of several in the last few weeks.

Around 1:15 Tuesday morning, APD was called to the 2400 block of Sylvester Road in East Albany where The Benchwarmers Bar is located. 

Owner Lisa Huffman tells WALB News 10 surveillance footage shows a man approaching the bar. At the scene shattered glass was found surrounding the front entrance.

Huffman says they never keep cash in registers overnight and only alcohol was stolen.

She says she was informed by APD that there is a possibility that this is the same burglar working with a gang who broke into two other stores Monday morning in Albany.

This is the first burglary the business has experienced, owners are looking to install bars that conceal weak points.
