Albany business owner repairs shop after possible burglary

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The owner of an Albany Trailer and Trucking Company is working to repair his shop after a vehicle smashed into it Saturday night.

Bobby Vaughn lives at this truck and trailer company with his dog name Scout.

Vaughn happened to be out of town on Saturday, and when he got back, he noticed something wasn't right.

"We pulled in the drive way we noticed the front door had been pulled off," said Vaughn.

Vaughn and the shop owner looked around the property, and noticed the door was smashed in.

"The hinges were busted so we started walking the perimeter, and found the back door where they rammed it with a truck trying to get inside."

And that wasn't all they found.

"We noticed tire tracks and noticed the door was caved in,” continued Vaughn.

Even though the door is caved in, the deadbolt lock remained intact. Vaughn thinks someone wanted to get inside.

"Right here where they were spinning out banging into the back door."

The owner of the shop contacted police. They are still looking around to see if anything was stolen. Vaughn said there is thousands of dollars worth of tools stored inside the shop.

"We still have not had access to the inside, but there is quite a bit of heavy tools, power tools generators compressor."

For now, Vaughn wondering whose responsible for the damage.

"We're kind of at a standstill right now as to who it could be."

This incident is under investigation. We're still waiting on a response from Dougherty County Police.
