FALLS COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

The Falls County Sheriff's Office is looking for two suspects involved in a unique burglary.

At around 2 a.m. on Sept. 25, two men decided they couldn't wait for the Dollar General in Golinda to open.

"They were disorganized. They didn't look like they knew exactly what they were entering the store for.  However, they did commit a theft once they were inside," said Chief Deputy Steve Smith with the Falls County Sheriff's Office.

Surveillance video from the store shows one of the suspects breaking through the front door glass using what appears to be a hammer. He and his partner then jump in and dash behind the register.

The suspects appear to be black males. One of the men is tall and then and the other is short and stocky.

"A large man with glasses, has a pretty distinctive walk," said Smith. "The other man, he's kind of difficult to tell, but he's a shorter man with a stocky build with a pretty unique ball cap that I hope someone will recognize."

Smith said it appears as though the thieves made a run for it after realizing the cash was locked in the register and that the plexiglass over the tobacco products wasn't giving in.

"Started to leave the store and one of them felt like he needed to take something so he removed something from one of the racks," Smith said. "The damage to the door cost more than what they took."

Smith said the incident may be minor to some, but it's still a burglary. He wants to get these guys off the streets before they do it again.

"Our hope is to get them identified, get them into custody and hopefully they'll change their ways," said Smith. "But until they're captured, they may just continue on and get more bold as they go."

If you know who these burglars are, you can call the Falls County Sheriff's Office at 254-883-1431 or Crime Stoppers at 254-883-3104 or 254-883-0332.
