LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -

Thieves who smashed their way inside a Lee's Summit restaurant likely thought they were making off with lots of cash.

If the two suspects split the stolen cash they will each get $1 after the thieves just made off with $2. 

The manager of Thai Spice hopes anyone who recognizes them will immediately call police. After employees were done for the evening, thieves tossed a rock inside the restaurant at 5:40 a.m. Sunday morning. 

"Broke in and ran straight for our register and pretty much yanked it out of the wall," said Max Chau, the manager of the restaurant. "I'm pretty sure they thought they were getting away with a lot of money."

After the suspects pulled up in a vehicle, it took just 45 seconds for one suspect to break the glass while the other dashed to the cash register. 

The property damage actually exceeded the amount of cash taken, as the restaurant reported $600 worth of property damage. 

One of the thieves ran right passed a sign that said the restaurant is hiring. 

"Just grow up," Chau said. "Get a job."
 
The business had to hire an emergency repair company to get a new door. They hope the suspects are caught before they damage another business.
