Rick and Bunny’s Smoke Shop is cleaning up after being broken into and burglarized for third time over the weekend.

The store, in south Oklahoma City, reopened in April after a fire.

Surveillance footage shows the suspects failed to break shatterproof glass on a door, so they moved on to a glass window.

Within seconds, the two men pillaged through glass cases before running out of the shop Saturday night.

“They took a lot of our swords. They took our concentrate rigs. They took our water pipes,” Bunni Wheaton said.

Rick and Bunni Wheaton have bars on one door, and say they plan to add more.

They're thinking about investing in additional shatter proof glass, and a new alarm system, as their current alarm didn't even go off during Saturday's break in.

However, the couple says even after everything that happened, they're not changing locations.

“I like where we're at. I love our people. Everyone knows where we're at and we're established here, and this is where we're staying,” Bunni said.

As they wait for new windows and replace the stolen inventory, the Wheatons are asking neighbors to be on the lookout for the suspects.

“Just if you know who they are please call the police or call us,” Bunni said.

The couple also started a GoFundMe page to raise money for repairs. Click here if you would like to donate.
