Philadelphia police are looking for two thieves who they say were caught on camera tunneling into a store in West Philadelphia.

According to police, two suspects breached The Church of God, located on 4817 Chester Avenue, around 4 a.m. on April 18th before breaking through a wall inside the church to enter a neighboring cellphone store called Unwired Solutions, located at 4821 Chester Avenue. 

The suspects then took several phones, police said, before breaking through another wall into an adjacent store called Jennifer Grocery, located at 4823 Chester Avenue. In that store, the suspects allegedly took an unknown amount of cash and lottery tickets from a lottery machine, according to police, before fleeing in an unknown direction.
