After further investigation, they climbed up onto the roof and saw where one or two suspects cut a hole in the roof.

From there, it appears they tried to slide down a pole and then fell at least 9 feet to the floor. At that point, they ran to the back door and left the area.
Sky 5 flew over the scene and showed damage to the building, which could cost the business thousands of dollars.
As of right now investigators don't believe the suspects took anything.
