Philadelphia Police are looking for two unknown burglars who broke into Lee’s Steak and Hoagies near Germantown and Chelten avenues early Tuesday and stole an estimated $2,550 in cash and numerous cartons of cigarettes.

According to police, who released surveillance video of the 5:20 a.m. burglary a day later, the two men gained access to the store through the roof.

They are described as two thin, 5-foot 7-inch tall black men, each with facial hair and wearing grey hooded sweatshirts. One wore socks over his hands; the other had a white towel or shirt covering his face.
