JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police are on the lookout for two burglary suspects who broke into a local gas station, leaving behind significant damage.

According to a Jonesboro police report, the suspects broke into Nettleton Quick Stop, 1708 Nettleton Avenue, Saturday morning.

As fresh footprints remained outside, police reviewed surveillance footage of the crime.

They could see a white SUV pull into a driveway next to the business.

Minutes later, it appeared the suspects were cutting phone lines, striking surveillance cameras, and damaging alarm speakers. Later, they managed to get the front door open with a crow bar.

The two men used their tools to break into a cash register, getting away with more than $150.

The thieves attempted to break into another cash register, but failed, leaving behind $8,000 worth of damage.

One of the suspects was seen on surveillance footage taking six cartons of cigarettes valued more than $360.

The owner told police the men kicked in an office door, damaged a speaker inside, and smashed an alarm key pad.

Police say one suspect was wearing all black with a stocking pulled over his face. The other suspect was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and had a white mask on.

Authorities believe one of the suspects is a black male and the other appeared to have light skin, which leads them to believe he could be black or white.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 935-STOP (7867).
