Burglary suspects spied in buildings

THOMASVILLE — Store video detected a burglary suspect entering a business early Saturday morning, and an employee saw a suspect in a business burglarized 30 minutes later.

About 1:50 a.m. Saturday, Thomasville police responded to Dollar General, 607 N. Madison St., in reference to an activated burglar alarm and found the front glass door of the business broken.

“Store video detected the suspect entering the business. However, nothing was taken,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department (TPD) public information officer.

Thirty minutes later, at 2:20 a.m., police responded to a burglary in progress at Leap Frog, 306 W. Jackson St. A front glass window of the business had been broken.

An employee who lives on-site told officers he heard glass breaking and went to the front of the business, where he saw a man standing near the front counter.

“The male fled the business, and the employee notified police,” Hampton said.

The suspect was described as a slender black male wearing a gray hoodie.

Nothing was reported missing from the business.

An arrest had not been made in the burglaries Monday. Hampton said police have no suspects and do not know if the two incidents are connected.

Anyone with information that could lead to an arrest in the burglaries is asked to call Crimestoppers at 227-3305 or the TPD Criminal Investigations Division at 227-3302.

Senior reporter Patti Dozer can be reached at (229) 226-2400, ext. 1820.
