Police are asking for help identifying the bandits accused of stealing $100,000 from Morris Heights bodega Los Castillos Mini Market.
Surveillance video shows two men opening the closed door behind the registers, opening the drawers and swiping the money. Investigators say they came through the back door and opened it with a crow bar.
Police say they also spray painted at least three surveillance cameras with black paint and cut off the Wi-Fi and wiring within the market that could have potentially alerted the police.
The United Bodegas of America says cash was scattered around the shop, but they were able to get away with $100,000.
A $10,000 reward has been put in place to bring the thieves to justice.
The suspects are still on the loose. Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call the NYPD.
