Video: Burglars rob electronic security store, unaware they're being videotaped

Linking LA CANDID CAMERA: This burglary might turn out to have been a questionable judgment call. Police in Irwindale are looking for two men who broke into a security store. Not surprisingly, according to the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the crime was caught on tape (the audio appears unrelated to the burglary):

Two men broke into what some might consider the heart of enemy territory for a burglar: an electronic security store. Surveillance videos from Spymicro, 13105 Ramona Blvd., show two men entering the business after one smashed the front door glass with a pry bar about 4:50 a.m. Dec. 19. Though the video feeds have clear shots of the suspects' faces, police have not been able to identify them.
