ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The surveillance video from the Juana Vape store on Ledo Road shows the crook burning his way in through a window about 2 Friday morning.

 Owner Tobey Cox says two masked people used fireworks to power a make shift flame thrower, and heat up the glass until he can break it by hitting it with a scooter.
One masked man went inside the store and loaded duffel bags with a large amount of store products.  His accomplice stayed outside, and took the bags he filled through the hole.  

Cox called the burglary heartbreaking.
Cox said "He took the highest dollar stuff that we had. But it has our name engraved on it. And we have the serial numbers as well.  So if it gets sold around here, and we can catch him, we have the numbers."

The crook escaped out the back door just seconds before Albany Police arrived.

The damage to the store, and the merchandise stolen is estimated to be in the thousands.  Tonight the stores owner is still cleaning up, and asking the community for help identifying this crook.
