The owners of Outback auto repair on North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard say thieves stole two vehicles from their parking lot late Wednesday night.

One of the vehicles stolen was the owner's work truck. Surveillance video shows them busting a gate open with a stolen truck, then driving away.

Kristal Geller, an employee at the shop said, "We try to do the best business that we can and stay loyal to our customers. We don't treat anybody as a number somebody takes from us and we give so much in return, it's kind of like a punch in the gut."

The stolen van was found broken down less than two miles from the auto shop Thursday morning. The owner's truck was found later in the day.

The owner of the shop tells us police did arrest two boys in connection with the crime.
