HOUSTON Several employees hid as burglars broke into a Sellers Bros grocery store in northeast Houston early Thursday, police say.

The break-in was reported around 3 a.m. in the 1500 block of Little York Road near E. Hardy Road, according to officers with the Houston Police Department.

Police said two to four men kicked in the front door s glass and then took phones and laptops.

The males broke out several glass display cabinets, said HPD Lt. Larry Crowson. They fled the area before officers arrived.

It s believed the men also tried to pry open the store s ATM before giving up and speeding away in a gray minivan.

While the crime was taking place, one of the workers who hid pulled out a cell phone and dialed 911.

No injuries were reported.

This is the same Sellers Bros that was broken into on Jan. 14. Two suspects were apprehended in that break-in.
