MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Repairs are being made to the back entrance of a Little Havana Game Stop where four burglars made a hole in the wall to break in.

Before the burglary, the thieves made a hole in the wall of another business, mistakenly believing it was the Game Stop.

Miami Police are looking for any clues left behind by the burglars who hit the store. Surveillance video shows the thieves making the hole by hitting the wall with a heavy object.

Around 4:30 a.m., the thief or thieves made their way inside and stole between $4,000.00 worth in merchandise.

“They may have used the rear part of this establishment as an out of sight, out of mind. That’s why we believe they took their time making the hole in the stucco wall,” said Kenia Fallat of Miami Police.

Within minutes they burglarized the business and made a swift jump with loot in hand over a 6-foot wall that surrounds the shopping center.

What the thief or thieves didn’t know is that they set off an alarm that alerted police. By the time police arrived, they were gone.

Police describe the four burglars as men in their early to mid-twenties, 150-160 lbs and 5’6”-5’8” tall.

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crimestopppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
