Vandals on the loose in Albany

Erik Phillips

Two Albany businesses within two blocks of each other were hit by vandals early Thursday morning.

Someone broke the front door of Dixie Theatre Supply around 3:00 and stole a camera.

A short time later, rocks shattered one of the front windows of Mattress World but nothing was taken.

Both businesses are on North Slappey.

The owner of Mattress World says he's been the victim of vandalism four times in the past four weeks and he's had enough.

"Why are you targeting us?" said Erik Phillips. "We have really nothing of value to someone. You're going to look a little funny going down the street carrying a mattress set on your back."

If you have any information on either incident, call the Albany Police Department or Crimestoppers.
