Police are looking for the public's help finding two men suspected of stealing a large safe full of money from a Riverside business on March 22.
The clumsy burglary happened in the 19900 block of Van Buren Boulevard at about 5:30 a.m. Riverside police say the men loaded a large safe into their white 4-door Toyota Rav4 before driving away from the scene.
It wasn't exactly the smoothest of operations. The thieves struggled to fit a safe in the small SUV. Another thief took a tumble, tripping over a safe after exiting through a rear door of the vehicle.
Police describe the first man as a white male adult in his 30s, about 5-feet 6-inches tall with an average build and seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black gloves, face mask, and black shoes.
