Suspect in Albany Dollar General smash-and-grab burglary arrested
ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - The Albany Police Department (APD) has made an arrest in an October smash-and-grab burglary at the Dollar General on N. Slappey Boulevard.
The suspect was identified as Willie Tom Green, 38. He reportedly threw a large cinder block through the front glass door of the store, went inside and took several tobacco items and then ran out of the store, according to officials.
