DEL CITY, Oklahoma -

Two suspects were caught on camera burglarizing a metro business.  Now, police is calling on the public in hopes of identifying them.

Padgham Automotive Accessories manager Travis Crank said one of their employees was working inside the shop when both suspects slipped inside.

The burglary happened on the morning of May 22. When the two men went inside, they broke into the cash registers and took approximately $850.

"Upon looking at it, it had been just destroyed on both sides and just pried open," Crank said.

They also took Crank’s camera. Police released images of the suspects captured by the cameras inside and outside of the store. 

Crank has worked at the location for four years.

"We’ve never had any kind of problems or occurrences that happened like that at all," Crank said. "I just couldn't believe what I was watching."

Crank also said it was fortunate no one was hurt during the incident. Authorities are still working to identify and track the two men down.  Crank said burglaries like this are starting to become a pattern with other businesses in the area.

"I just want to get these guys off the street, so that no one else has to suffer the same way that we have," Crank said. "We just shouldn't have this type of thing happening."
