Police are searching for several suspects who broke into a northwest Houston grocery store to steal hundreds of cartons of cigarettes, laptops and baby formula.

The burglary happened at around 3am Wednesday at a Fiesta on Wirt and Hammerly.

With a crowbar police say three suspects made their way into the Fiesta grocery store and they were after cigarettes, laptops and baby formula.

"Each pack of cigarettes costs about $5; we think there's 400-500 cigarettes in there," said Lt. Larry Crowson with the Houston Police Department.

While the suspects were filling trash bags full of loot, a security guard working nearby saw the whole thing and called police.

"As they were exiting, the patrol officer made it in the area, saw the vehicle leaving the parking lot, attempted to stop them. They led him on short pursuit; he stopped, bailed out and hid behind a house," Lt. Crowson said.

Officers and a K-9 caught up with one suspect and took him into custody. Police say he's facing a burglary charge.

Two other suspects are still on the run.

Investigators found the stolen merchandise in the trunk of the getaway vehicle.

Police say there were employees in the back of the store at the time that had no idea what was happening in the front of the store.
