NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Two burglars broke into a Houston, Texas dry-cleaning store through a hole in the ceiling to get to a liquor store next door.
Houston Police said the men cut power to the building and then broke inside the cleaners through a hole in the ceiling to get to the liquor store next door.
The men ransacked the the liquor store and were trying to collect as much as possible, according to witnesses, but what they didn't expect was a witness to show up and scare them off.
Both the dry cleaning business and liquor store have security cameras installed but because the power was cut, nothing was recorded.
