Smash-and-grab burglary caught on camera in southeast Houston; Only beer was taken


It happened around 3am at a Valero station in the 16600 block of El Camino Real at Ramada -- just a block away from the Harris County Precinct 8 Constable's office.

Houston police said witnesses reported seeing the windows broken and a grey Chrysler 300 leaving the scene as glass fell off of it.

The store was closed at the time of the break-in, but surveillance cameras had eyes on the incident.

Their grey car was backed into the store through the front doors. Seconds later, the suspects came outside with some beer.

Apparently, that's all that was stolen.

"We contacted the store clerk; he came out and it appears the only thing taken were several cases of beer," HPD Lt. Larry Crowson said.

Police will be examining the surveillance video to get the license plate number on the vehicle and track down the suspects. There is no word on how many people were involved.
