NORTH SALT LAKE -- Police have determined that two men in a surveillance video are not the same men who robbed a North Salt Lake business last week.

On Monday, police were able to track down the two men. North Salt Lake police Sgt. Mitch Gwilliam spoke with them and determined that they weren't involved in the robbery.

Surveillance video captured the robbery at Ops Gear on Wednesday night. Police said the burglars seemed to know exactly what they wanted and exactly where to find it.

David Burnell, the owner of Ops Gear, figured by how the burglars grabbed specific items and passed on others, they must have been in the store before. He looked at surveillance video from the day before and found two men who he thought looked like the burglars.

In the video, the men walked in, looked at a few items, and then left. The items they looked at were stolen just 12 hours later.

Now that those two men have been ruled out, Gwilliam says police will go back to the initial evidence in the case.

There's a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the burglars' arrest.
