Owner disgusted after game room is trashed

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Trash and debris cover the floors of one Moultrie business, and the owner says he's disgusted, after learning crooks broke into his business three times in a row. 

Police now need the community's help identifying the people responsible.  James Cain said spent close to $30,000 transforming the building into a game room for neighborhood teens.   But now it is destroyed, and he wants answers.  

"Any information, I'll follow any lead I can get." Moultrie Police Investigator David Jones is piecing together clues left behind, after burglars broke into the game room on seventh avenue three times.

"There was a burglary where the front door was kicked into the business and money was stolen, candy was stolen," said Jones.

The crooks came back on Sunday night-- through the AC unit.  "The very next night, the 18th going into the 19th, some time late at night or in the early morning hours, the AC unit was pushed into the business again" said Jones.

Candy and cash weren't the only things on the minds of the suspects. Instead, they deployed a fire extinguisher inside the business, and trashed the floors and pool tables with food and soap. 

James Cain is in cleanup mode right now and did not want to speak on camera. He says he knows someone knows something. And hopes someone will do the right thing and speak up.  

"This is a spot where kids can go.  It gives kids in the neighborhood something to do.  And for someone to go in and destroy it, you're hurting the community. You're not just hurting yourself, you're hurting everybody around you,"  Jones  said.
