HOUSTON -– Three suspects wearing hoodies broke into a Dollar General discount store in southwest Houston early Tuesday, police said.

It happened in the 11500 block of Wilcrest Drive around 5 a.m., according to officers with the Houston Police Department.

The suspects used a crowbar to pry the door open. They then took trash cans and emptied the store’s cigarette case. Police said they also stole a few other items before taking off.

The suspects were apparently still on loose a few hours later.
