ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Edgewood police are looking for two people who they said were caught on camera breaking into the historical Randall Knives Company in Edgewood.

Authorities said the knives were worth several thousand dollars.

Police said they said broke into the business just after midnight on April 6. 

Video shows the pair breaking a side window of the Randall Knife Company. 

According to police, the pair tried to disable the alarm system before breaking into the building and stealing knives valued at $3,500. 

“They came in through the side window when they couldn’t get the door accessed,” said Sgt. Ronald Beardslee with the Edgewood Police Department.

The Randall Knife Company specializes in custom hunting knives that range anywhere from $300 to $1,200. 

"It appears the suspects were mainly after the knives inside the company.  I mean, they went right back to the area where the knives were," Beardslee said. “These are highly specialized knives. They are world famous. They are hunting knives that they manufacture on site.”

As police lights were seen in the surveillance video arriving at the business, the two burglars made their getaway, which led police to believe a third person may have been involved.

“We were guessing that they might have had a lookout because as soon as the patrol cars arrived on scene, the bad guys started running out of the building,” Beardslee said.

The masked thieves were able to get away, and now police are hoping the surveillance video will put them behind bars.
