ALBANY, GA (WALB) - New surveillance video gave us a good look at two men Albany Police are searching for.

Police are investigating surveillance video from Monday night, which shows two men shattering the front door of the Albany Beauty store on North Slappey.

Police gave us permission to use this video.

The store has more than 20 surveillance cameras inside and around it.

And that makes sense since the manager said she takes security very seriously.

"Something that happens that's that close, it's kind of scary," said Albany Beauty manager Tasha Posey.

Posey said it's frustrating and frightening to watch the surveillance video of Monday night's attempted break in.

"I was shocked, nothing like this has ever happened to us.  This is the first time that it's happened.  I was just really shocked. I was glad to know nothing was taken," she said.

The video clearly shows both men's faces and memorable clothing.

Posey described one man as wearing pajamas with emojis on them.

The other, in long gym pants and a tie dyed shirt.

"They didn't try to hide, didn't seem like they were in a hurry to do anything, didn't seem like they were scared," said Posey. "I know they seemed to me like they were young, so maybe they don't fully understand what's going on, what they did, the consequences behind it."

The video shows the two walking up to the store around 10:30 Monday night.

They slowly walk to the end of the shopping strip and return with a brick.

You can see one of the men uses the brick to smash the door.

Posey believes the bars on the doors are the only things that stopped them from getting in.

"It's causing damage," she said.  "We have bars on our doors and windows, you wouldn't even be able to get in here. So why even break the glass?"

Posey said even with the security system they have now, they're planning to beef it up even more.

And for the two who tried to break in, she has no sympathy for them for being young and naive.

"No matter what age, I feel like they were at an age to know the difference between right and wrong," she said.  " So no, I don't feel sad for them.  Not at all. Not a little bit."
