ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police are searching for a masked man who stole money from cars.

He was caught on surveillance video walking slowly up the driveway of a home on Lovers Lane Road in Dougherty County Wednesday morning about 2:15 a.m.

The video showed a man opening the doors on three cars, searching through them for something to steal.

"She woke up in the middle of the night, around 2:15, and just happened to look over at the camera monitor and observed an individual going inside of her vehicles. They did call the police," said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick with Dougherty County Police.

The thief got $45, before he suddenly ran away.
