Belmont police are on the lookout for two men who were captured on security cameras breaking into the Walgreens on the 900 block of Ralston Avenue early last Friday.

At approximately 4:15 a.m., Belmont police responded to a burglar alarm at the location and discovered one of the glass front doors was smashed with a block of concrete, according to police.

The two men were captured on the store’s security cameras smashing one of the glass front doors and loading boxes of cigarettes into plastic trash bags, before fleeing the store.
