SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

The sheriff's office believes they caught the man seen on surveillance video throwing a rock at a convenience store door.

The plexi glass door did not break. The man ran, jumped into a car, and drove away. So far, he has not been charged. 

Americus Police are working to see if that man committed a similar burglary in the city. The door at the Shell station was smashed. The burglar got away with hundreds of dollars in lottery tickets. 

"It does concern us when any property owner's property is damaged and merchandise is taken. It's very to important to us to try and apprehend the suspects and get them off the street," said Interim Chief Herman Lamar. 

Anyone with information is urged to call the Americus Police Department.
