Schererville police were dispatched at 2:47 a.m. to the store at 1150 U.S. 41, Cmdr. Jeff Cook said.

Officers found broken glass in the front of the business, but the suspects were gone.

Officers obtained surveillance video, which showed five men breaking in and stealing items.

Entry was gained at 2:47 a.m. The men fled the scene at 2:48 a.m., police said. 

Anyone with information about the suspects' identities or the burglary is asked to call Detective Chris Goldasich at 219-322-5000, ext. 2319.
