Early Sunday morning, burglars used a blow torch to break into EnGenius Technologies at 1580 Scenic Ave. The burglars used a blow torch to break into the closed business before fleeing with thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, according to police.

Surveillance camera footage showed two people broke into the business at 1:47 a.m. that morning, while three or four other people waited outside.

A Ford van and Ford truck, both stolen out of Santa Ana, were seen shortly before 9:30 a.m. parked near the rear of the business. Police found the stolen vehicles parked next to a metal roll up door, which had been cut open with a blow torch. By the time officers arrived, the burglars had fled.
