Clumsy burglar caught on tape

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Police are searching for a bold, but clumsy burglar caught on camera breaking into the Dollar General on Newton Road Friday.

He threw a block through the front door just before 3:00 AM. He dumped the empty cash box behind the counter and could not get into the cigarette case.

They guy with a T-shirt pulled over his head then bumped his head on a sign as he jumped back over the counter.

He picked up a trash can and grabbed disposable lighters, medications, umbrellas, and candy.

Investigators say crimes like this hurt all customers. "Once people steal from those stores, ultimately it's up to the consumers that pay the bill. Because a lot of times they'll raise the prices of the products to pay for the loss," said DCP Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick.

If you recognize him, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
