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. The suspects were in the store for approximately two minutes and the total loss is estimated at approximately $6,700 ($5,700 worth of cigarettes and $1,000 in damage to the door), according to police.

The men are both described as dark-skinned and medium build. One was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, jeans and athletic shoes. The other was wearing a gray beanie, dark sweatshirt and athletic shoes, according to police.
