Deputies are looking for two people who broke into a store in Laurel County.

Sheriff John Root said two men broke a glass door to enter Corner Market off KY 830, south of London.

The break-in triggered an alarm around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

“They kick the front glass in, and in they come. It’s apparent they have already been in the store before because they knew exactly whey they were going. Go straight to money items," said Deputy Gilbert Acciardo.

The two were inside the store for about a minute.

“You can see they have hoodies on. They are trying to conceal their identity. However, we are hoping someone drove by and saw a vehicle, or knows who the vehicle belongs to," said Acciardo.

Sheriff Root said deputies are investigating the break-in as a burglary but did not specify what may have been stolen.

It was all caught on surveillance video inside the store. Deputies say other businesses should invest in quality cameras.

“The video is worth a million dollars. They had a really good camera system. The video is excellent. It’s just they did conceal their identity wit hoodies and gloves," said Acciardo.

The sheriff asks that you contact his office at 606-864-6600 or through Facebook if you recognize either of the people from the surveillance footage.
