HOUSTON—A pair of burglars broke through an iron security gate to steal from a Stafford hardware store.
Surveillance video shows the men using a crow bar to break into Empire Tools where they stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise within two minutes.
Stafford police say the break-in appears to be the work of professionals.
"I want my inventory back, but if not I just want these guys caught because I mean, small business we work hard. I mean, we work night and day for our business and they just take out stuff just like that," said manager Andrew Shin.
The business opened in that location just three weeks ago.
