ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A suspect was caught on camera stealing two rocking chairs off of the porch of a resident at Albany Homes.

Now the owner wants the public's help to catch the thief.

Charles Farrell said he's irritated by the crime, and he wants the crook brought to justice.

He's not convinced he will get his rockers back, but he wants this thief caught before striking again.

Despite a storm with driving rain and gusting winds, video surveillance shows a truck pull up in front of Farrell's house on Darr Lane around 3 a.m. Saturday.

A man jumps out of the passenger door, trots up to the porch, grabs one of the four white porch rockers and takes it back to the truck.

After putting it in the bed, he comes back. He takes a second rocker and puts it in the back of the truck as well.

Farrell said he noticed the rockers were missing on Saturday morning.

"When you work and try to earn something and then someone comes by and take it, then that kind of irritates you," said Farrell.

The thief took just two of the four chairs on the porch, and left two matching tables. Farrell said he doesn't know why the thief did that, but he thinks the theft was planned.

"I do kind of think he scoped things out. What he did- he picked them out and set a time to come back to get them later," he said.

Farrell is asking everyone to take a look at this theft, and help him identify the man and the truck used.

I doubt [that I'll get them back]. I'm more interested in him, to stop him," Farrell said regarding the chairs. "I would like to see him brought to justice."

Farrell said the chairs cost about $110 each, but it's not about the money. He says it's the principle of the matter.
