HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Crooks smashed their way into the City Gear clothing store in a southeast Houston shopping center early this morning.

It happened around 4am at the store off Telephone and Bellfort.

Houston police say the would-be thieves used a stolen truck to try and break into the clothing store. The crooks put the truck in reverse and smashed into the wall.

The truck then got stuck, and the suspects couldn't pull it out to get into the store. They took off without taking anything.

Houston police say the truck was stolen sometime last Sunday. The attempted burglary left a huge hole in the side of the business.
