Pastor Charlie Muller runs the Victory Christian Church in that neighborhood. He has surveillance cameras set up on his building and watches the criminal activity. He’s begging Albany police to station an officer in his neighborhood.

"In our JC Club. Put them in the office. Put them here as an out-station to police this target area," Muller said. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Albany Police Department.
