NOPD: Men Dug Thorugh Wall to Burglarize Store

Police are searching for two men who dug through a cinderblock wall to burglarize a convenience store in New Orleans East.

The Times-Picayune reports that surveillance cameras showed the unidentified men climb through a hole in the wall of the Family Ranch Market and enter the store through a cooler door.

The men had fled by the time police officers responded to the store's alarm early Saturday.

They allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of merchandise and $100 from the cash register.

One the men was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and a bandanna over his face. The other man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.
