COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus Police say a persistent burglar is behind a break-in at Farrar's Furniture Store located near the intersection of Brown Avenue and Buena Vista Road.

On September 11th, surveillance video captured a man stealing two trash cans, then on the following Friday, September 18th, he was seen walking around the store - scoping out furniture.

Then on the 19th, he returned, broke the window, and stole a TV worth $1500.  

Monday morning, the same suspect stole a van from Mayo Academy and drove it into the front entrance of Farrar Furniture Store.

He took a $1600 big screen TV, but dropped it as police arrived on the scene and fled on foot.
