MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- They cut through the fence to get in -- two burglars having a field day at Regency Motors off Schillinger Road. Both wearing hoodies and one with a noticeable limp.

According to surveillance footage, they got here around 11 o'clock Monday night and would spend more than four hours going through vehicles and taking just about anything they wanted. Everything from tools to an air filter.

At first they had their eyes on a white 7 series BMW, loading it up with the stolen goods. It had the keys inside -- only thing is they needed to move a truck that was used to block the gate.

Ducking down as cars passed by, one of the suspects eventually got underneath the truck and the other rocking it back and forth. They eventually got creative -- taking seatbelts from another car to try and drag the truck out of the way with a 3 series BMW that was barely drivable.

After several failed attempts they are clearly frustrated. They would eventually give up and realize both BMWs were not drivable. However, they didn't leave empty handed -- taking nearly $5,000 worth of stolen items and tools.

One of the suspects lost his hoodie for a moment as he walked across the parking lot giving us a glimpse of his face. If you recognize him or possibly know who the guy with the limp may be -- Mobile Police want to hear from you 251-208-7211.
