In our latest "Caught in the Act" -- a local business is hit up twice in two nights at two different locations.

Team Sheriff posting the surveillance video from Wilson Dismukes Inc. The video shows a man disguised in a hoodie and sunglasses smashing through the businesses front door in the early morning hours of June 11th at their Airport Boulevard store.

"It's pretty low down. It really is," said Kevin Duffey, General Manager.

Authorities believe the same people are responsible for a smash and grab burglary at their Government Street location a day before.

"It was the same M.O. Smashed the glass in both cases. Targeted the same type of equipment. Probably wasn't the first time they've done something like this," said Duffey.

Within minutes the man in the surveillance video is grabbing hand-held air blowers, each with a price tag upwards of $500. He's also seen walking away with a couple weedeaters

"Things they know they can probably pawn quickly or sell to someone quickly. They have a lot of street value because it's well known," explained Duffey.

The suspect drove up in a four door burgundy car. Investigators say there was also a woman inside who appears to be the lookout. But we can't show you what she was doing in the back parking lot.

"Yeah she urinated in the parking lot and shows a lot of class. Hopefully they can get her for indecent exposure," said Duffey.

With two agencies working the case, they're hoping police catch up with them before another business is cleaning up the mess and counting their loss.

"Makes me angry, makes us all angry. We work too hard to have somebody take our things," said Duffey.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Mobile County Sheriff's Office or Mobile Police.
