Police are searching for two men who broke into a Signal Hill deli and attempted to steal a TV.Surveillance video on Sept. 19 caught the suspects breaking in at Rocco's Deli Italiano by shattering the glass door, then kicking it in.

Two men slid into the store through the broken door and went directly to the TV set hanging on the wall. However, it appears they could not figure out how to remove the TV and left empty handed.

One of the co-owners said the set is worth about $500. He said the would-be thieves ignored a much more expensive MacBook laptop on the counter and cash in the cash register.

Anyone with information on the robbery attempt is asked to call Signal Hill police at (562) 989-7220.
