ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Authorities believe that two men may be responsible for a rash of storage unit burglaries in Dougherty and Lee Counties.
At a Friday morning news conference, Albany Police officials said that Todd Anthony Cook has confessed to at least 12 counts of burglary. Kerry Brumbley is suspected of having a role in the burglaries, and was taken into custody of a probation violation.
They said that surveillance video at a Lee County location showed Cook, and led law men to him on Wednesday. Merchandise has been sold at flea markets and pawn shops, and police say citizens should check their storage units to see if any property is missing.
Albany and Lee County officials have recovered a large haul of stolen property, which victims can claim, with proper identification.
APD said the arrests will clear cases at Simpson Self Storage on South Mock Road, where they recovered three electric scooters and a bench grinder.
They recovered a leather sofa and love seat stolen from Five Points Mini Storage on East Broad Avenue.
A generator was recovered after it was stolen at Gillionville Storage on Gillionville Road.
Stolen Softball equipment and a bicycle was recovered from a burglary at Bush's Self Storage in Lee County, and property was found taken from burglaries at Affordable Mini Warehouse Lee County.
