PHILADELPHIA -

Two men were caught on video swiping more than $6,000 worth of merchandise from a store in the Cedarbrook section of Philadelphia, police say.

The theft occurred Oct. 2, a Wednesday, at 2:20 p.m. inside Sneaker Villa, located at 1616 Wadsworth Avenue.

According to police, who released surveillance video of the incident on Tuesday, the two suspects acted as if they were shopping while a car driven by a third suspect waited in front of the store.

The guys inside collected several brown Levi jackets and gray Nike hooded sweatshirts, valued at a total of $6,080, and placed them onto one rack, police said.

Then, they grabbed all of the clothing and ran outside to the waiting silver or gray, late-model Pontiac Grand Prix of Bonneville sedan, which may have had damage to the passenger side front fender.

Police described both men as being black and about 20-years-old. The first with a stocky build wore a black, sleeveless T-shirt, camouflage pants, dark-colored sneakers, and a dark-colored baseball cap with a red brim. The other guy had a medium build, wore a dark-colored T-shirt with a white-colored emblem on the front, blue jeans, a dark-colored baseball cap and dark-colored sneakers.

If you see these suspects, police say not to approach them. Call 9-1-1 immediately. To submit a tip, call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text it to PPD TIP or 773847.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
