OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for three men who allegedly broke into a local supermarket and stole hundreds of dollars from cash registers.

On Nov. 18, officers were called to the Chinatown Supermarket, located at 1228 N.W. 27th St., after learning about a burglary.

Employees told police that when they arrived at the store, they noticed that the doors to the east side of the building were broken and all of the registers were damaged.

According to the police report, the employees say that the burglars got away with cash from the registers.

Video from the store’s surveillance cameras captured three men wearing dark-colored hoodies and dark pants breaking into the supermarket.

After using sledgehammers to break the cash registers, police say the men went into the Golden Phoenix restaurant, which is attached to the supermarket. Once inside the restaurant, investigators say the suspects broke those registers too.

Now, police are hoping to identify the alleged thieves in the video.
