Doyal's owner at ease following suspect arrest

Jerry Doyal, owner of Doyal's Costume Warehouse in Albany, is feeling more relaxed following the arrest of Larry Watts.

Watts, 55, is accused of holding up Doyal's on East Oglethorpe and D&D Food Mart on Jefferson Street the afternoon of June 26th and firing shots into the ceilings of both businesses.

"I'm relieved, I didn't sleep about 2-3 hours that night," Doyal said. "I'm real relieved because I was afraid he might come back. You know, and there is no telling what he would do."

After that robbery, Doyal decided to close his business in October. He maintains that he will do so but is offering major discounts as the time nears.
