HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Unfortunately burglaries are pretty common, but normally they happen at homes or businesses.

However this time, Crime Stoppers wants your tips on a bizarre burglary that took place at a parking garage, of all places.

On surveillance video, you can see a man and woman enter the parking garage on East Clinton Avenue in downtown Huntsville July 20.

You can see the man walk by the office, check the door to see if it's locked, then go back and pry open the door.

Once he picked the lock, the man went to a cabinet. They also rifled through several drawers.

They didn't make off with very much, but they're still facing burglary charges.

The video shows the damage to the cabinet as well as the frantic search through the desk drawers.

No money was taken. You kind of get the feeling they didn't think this one through.

We want you to do some thinking here and see if you recognize either or both of these burglars. If so, you'll end up with some money, to the tune of up to $1,000.

All you have to do is make the anonymous phone call to 256-53-Crime. You can also text or email your tips anonymously - click here for more information.
