Man caught on video stealing cigarettes from Albany store

 An Albany convenience store chain owner says crime against his businesses is worse than ever, and most are caught on camera.

Take a look at this man caught on surveillance video at Woodall's on North Slappey at 2 AM Tuesday morning. 

He orders three cartons of Newport Cigarettes.

When the clerk sets them on the counter, the customer asks for something else, then grabs the $140 worth of cigarettes and runs.

Owner Wright Woodall says crime is getting worse.


"It is. Yes," said Woodall.  "More vandalism, more robberies. More armed robberies.  More shoplifting.  We've seen more of that in the last six months than we have ever seen."

If you recognize this man, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
