WICHITA, Kan.-- Two burglars steal from a Southwest Wichita smoke shop during the early morning hours.

"It's kind of painful, financially. We're a small business," said Gail Puckett, owner of the Easy Stop Smoke Shop, near Seneca and McCormick.

Surveillance video shows that around 2:30 a.m., two men broke the front door of the store but they did not go inside. The pair return around 4:30 a.m., finished breaking the glass, and then proceed inside.

The burglars took about a hundred dollars worth of cigarettes and the cash register itself, which contained less than $15 in change. The video shows the suspects left in car that may have been a late model Ford Taurus or Dodge Intrepid.

One of the suspects appears to be in his early 20s with light skin and an afro haircut.

In December, three armed men robbed the store clerk at the store and police are still searching for those suspects.

If you have any information about these crimes, call 911.
