NEW ORLEANS – A group of burglars made off with two guns, cigars, cash, and cigarettes after spending more than an hour rummaging through a St. Roch convenience store.

The burglars made their way inside the Fame Food Mart in the 1800 block of Almonaster Avenue just after 2:30 a.m. on December 19, according to the NOPD.

They had collected cash, two firearms, and the cigarettes and cigars by the time they fled in a red SUV about 3:40.

Surveillance video captured two men pushing a large box along the ground outside the store as the SUV, which had its lights turned off, pulled up.

The thieves loaded their haul into the SUV and drove off.
