Burglar tries to break-in to business by cutting power, fails

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police say someone tried to break into an Albany business by shutting off the power, but failed.

According to a report, someone cut the power to Allen's Jewelry early Sunday morning. The owner said the meter box on the back of the store was broken and ripped from the wall, hoping to keep the security alarm to the store from going off.

"The interior beeper goes off and you can actually hear it outside if everything is quiet. So they probably heard that and realized they made a mistake and left," said owner Steve Allen.

He said the motion-sensor security cameras were also deactivated because of the loss of power. No one was able to get inside the store and nothing was taken.
