Thieves target cars at repair garage

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The owner of a car shop is frustrated after thieves broke into 10 cars at his business.

They targeted Americus Auto Care on U.S. 19 twice in one week, emptying out the glove boxes of cars and leaving behind a big mess.

The owner says police are increasing patrols now.

"They haven't gotten anything of value. They got a radio out of one truck but it looked like they're just rifling through the glove boxes looking for money or cell phones or electronics or stuff--very frustrating," said owner Robert Klein.

Klein asks the public to keep an eye out for people walking around the property after hours.
