Thieves shut down Albany business with computer thefts

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany business owner may have to pay more than $7,000 to fix damage caused by burglars. Thieves broke a hole in the wall of Crawford and Sons Oil Company in the 100 block of West 3rd Avenue and stole 3 computers and a hard drive early Sunday morning.

Mickey Crawford says the crime will shut his business down for the next few days at least. City commissioner BJ Fletcher is working with the police chief to increase patrols in the area.

"I've got to stay in communication with him. I was grateful that he called me because that gave me an opportunity to make my calls. And we have to let the taxpayers know, they're the ones paying us, they have to know that we care," said Fletcher.

Crawford says this is the second time this has happened in 4 years, and two other businesses in the area have been hit by computer thieves recently.

He hopes to be running again by Thursday.
