Albany auto shop picking up the glass and repairs from damaged cars

ALBANY, GA — Purvis Auto Repair is now responsible for the repair of six cars that were damaged late Thursday night after the shop had closed. An unknown number of suspects used a BB gun to shoot out the windows of six cars — three inside the gate and three outside.

Buddy Purvis, the owner, will be paying for the repairs out of pocket. The repairs will cost him around $4,000.

Buddy is offering a $300 reward to anyone with information that convicts or catches the person(s) involved.

Albany police found a CO2 cartridge from the BB gun. They’re hoping to pull some prints from it or match a serial number to trace it back to the suspect.

Purvis is very afraid he is going to lose business — a new customer is one of the victims — their car had six panes of glass shot out. He is now taking steps to ensure future customers can feel safe leaving their car in his hands.
