Two burglars left behind a trail of destruction during a smash and grab early Sunday. 

San Antonio police say the burglars took the door off its hinges at the Stop N Buy in the 13000 block of Huebner Road to get to the ATM.

"They took like maybe two or three minutes to get the door off, to get it off of the hinges, and after that they ran to the ATM," said Bill, the store clerk.

The store was closed for the night when two burglars broke in around 2 a.m.

After several attempts to break in to the machine with a crow bar, the machine finally gave.

Bill thinks the suspects may have experience with this type of crime. "Pros, looks like not the first time they are doing it. It didn't take them a very long time to break in to the ATM," said Bill.

The two suspects then left the store with a little over $4,000, not even attempting to take anything else.

Police are looking for two Hispanic men, one was heavy set and both were around six feet tall. Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call SAPD.
