Alarm Scares off Burglars on Ayers Street

CORPUS CHRISTI - A couple of burglars got quite a scare themselves this morning. In fact, they left most of their loot behind.

About three to four men broke into HICO Helium Wholesale Distributors on Ayers near Saratoga overnight.

It appears the burglars got onto the property by cutting a hole through the fence of a neighboring business.

Once inside, they broke into a truck where they grabbed several portable tools, drills and extension cords.

As they were preparing to back up a trailer to snatch some bigger equipment the thieves set off an alarm and then took off running. They left most of the tools behind.

What they didn't realize is they were caught on camera.

If you have any information on the crime, call police at 888-TIPS.
