Criminal shatters block wall, goes empty-handed

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A burglar hammered a hole through the wall of a North Albany industry, but left empty handed.

The hole at Schuff Steel Atlantic in the 1900 block of Ledo Road was discovered Monday morning.

Police say a burglar took a sledgehammer from the business workshop and broke a hole in the cinder block wall of a restroom. Company officials say surveillance video showed the burglar went to where vending machines used to be. 

The burglar left without stealing anything, but the damage is estimated at three thousand dollars.
