SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Police are looking for thieves that broke into South Bark Dog Wash Monday night. 

Lisa Vella, the owner, said the thieves broke through their glass door and stole $2,500 worth of flea medicine. 

“They just ran up and threw a rock, went in like Superman, and the other person followed,” said Vella. 

She said flea medication is usually about $85 per box.

“People who resell average about $40, so it's much cheaper, and they can get rid of it really fast,” said Vella. 

San Diego County Animal Services said there’s no crime trend in San Diego right now that involves flea medicine. 

Vella said this isn’t the first time someone has broken into her store. She said it happened December 2016, and the thieves stole their computer. 

“It's tough to feel sad, 17 years of business and you want to serve a community, and it's hard,” said Vella. 

She said she's working with police to identify the people in the video.
