ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police are urging storm victims with damaged homes to be vigilant when volunteers and contractors are around offering help.
Albany Police Chief Michael Persley said neighbors were very good watching their streets when the January storms first hit, calling police if strangers were seen.
But Chief says now that repairs are underway, don't let your guard down when people you don't know are around your home.
"People need to stay vigilant,"said Persley. "Everybody who may come to help you recover from the storm may not be there to help you. They may be there to help themselves."
Chief Persley said storm victims need to stay on watch, and call police when they have any questions about unknown people on your street.
