FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) – Staffers at an animal shelter in Fort Worth are hoping surveillance video will help identify two men who broke into their location on South Hulen Street and stole a few hundred dollars worth of electronics.

“There’s not anything here worth stealing,” said Benjamin Morris with Animal Hope Adoptions. “The total value of the stuff they took was miniscule. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to break in.”

Two computers and a web cam were stolen. The shelter  will also need to repair the front door. But Morris says the impact of the break-in goes beyond the financial costs.

Surveillance video on the shelter’s Facebook page shows close-up shots of the two suspects inside the building. Morris added some creative descriptions of the men, referring to them as “jackwagons” who are wearing “some kind of stupid hat”.

“A lot of times in situations like this, you react out of fear,” Morris said. “I wanted to show them that I wasn’t afraid.”

He hopes the video will help track down the two men responsible for the break-in.

“I guarantee you someone has showed that video to the people that did this. Somebody knows who those guys are,” Morris said. “I want them to call us or call the police and say ‘I know who these knuckleheads are’.”
