Houston police want you to check out surveillance video, as they look for armed robbers. Police say the video shows four armed men hitting a small transport business on Long Drive near Telephone Road in southeast Houston. The business involved picking up people south of the border and moving them around the United States.

The robbers targeted the business at least twice.

"Armed with semi-automatic pistols and rifles and bullet proof vests," said Raul Yzquierdo with the HPD Investigative First Responders Division. "They were looking for money, cell phones and they were pretty violent in that incident also."

Police think the same robbers may have hit other businesses around southeast Houston. Anyone who recognizes them is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or to log onto to Crime-Stoppers.org
