Police say a pair of burglars broke into a food store in northeast Houston and ransacked the place.

It happened around 4am at the Super Star Food Mart off Tidwell and Homestead.

Officers got an alarm call and when they arrived, saw the two men inside the store. Police believe the men got inside through the roof. They managed to arrest both suspected burglars before they could get away.

The store's owner believes the thieves stole cash from the store and also says a gun he keeps in the store is missing as well. Officers did recover some cash but wouldn't say where it may have come from.
