February 24, 2011 12:04:27 AM PST
Sheriff's deputies released surveillance video on Wednesday of two bungling burglary suspects in La Mirada.

The video shows the deputies walking into the the Chevron Food Mart in the 14000 block of Rosecrans Avenue on Jan. 23. Right behind them, two men are seen walking in and grabbing a snacks and beer, and then leaving without paying.

The two suspects, identified as 29-year-old Jacob Wallace and 19-year-old Robert Martin, apparently didn't notice that several uniformed deputies were inside the store.

The deputies immediately arrested the suspects outside the store.

Both men face charges of burglary and petty theft.
