The suspects may have known exactly what they were looking for.

We have exclusive surveillance video from inside the store.

You can see one of the suspects taking a sledge hammer to the 8-liner gaming machines inside the store.

The store owner says the men got money from the games, then stole the drop safe that was bolted to the floor.

The men then left a trail of cigarettes as they took off.

The owner tell us the men got into the store by smashing through a wall and unlocking the back door.

"It is upsetting, to come out in the middle of the night and look at all of this, it's a mess inside," he said.

The suspects are still on the loose, the store owner says he has been robbed three times in the last 3 years.
