CLEAR LAKE, Texas (AP) — An illegal beer run at a Houston-area convenience store has police seeking two suspects who crashed a car into the business and only took an 18-pack of brew.

Police say nobody was hurt in the smash-and-grab crime early Tuesday in Clear Lake that was captured on store security video.

The recording shows the car backing into the front doors of the closed store. Two people with gloves and concealed faces scramble from the car, amid broken glass from the demolished doors, and into the store.

Both return to the car as one suspect totes an 18-pack of beer before driving away.

Police don't believe anything else was stolen. Investigators are checking the surveillance video for the car's license plate number.

The store owner estimates damage at about $5,000.
