Police said the men broke into the store on West Indian River Boulevard on Aug. 22 and stole nearly $40,000 worth of cellphones and tablets.

Surveillance video caught the men breaking into the business and sawing through the safe. The men then left in a white Chevrolet truck.

 "It was pretty brazen. They weren't wearing any kind of masks. Not trying to hide their identities at all. They brazenly fire up their saws and they cut into the safe and they emptied the store out in just a couple of minutes," said Edgewater Police Chief David Arcieri.

It is believed the same men broke into six other AT&T stores throughout the state, including locations in Davenport, The Villages and Tampa-area stores since March 2014.

"There's no telling whether they'll come back or not. Hope they don't, unless they're in cuffs," said Arcieri.

Anyone with information is requested to contact the Edgewater Police Department at 386-424-2000, anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS.
