ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police say a smash and grab burglar apparently left empty-handed, after breaking the front window of the South Slappey Dollar General.

About 3 a.m. Thursday, a man in a light colored hoodie repeatedly threw large rocks against the sliding glass doors of the Dollar General, until it finally broke.

The suspect ran inside and grabbed clothing and headphones. When the alarm sounded the man dropped the items and ran away.
