KENNEWICK, WA - A break-in overnight has a local business left with a major loss.

Much of the inventory at the Verizon store on Clearwater Avenue in Kennewick was stolen Thursday night. The people at the store say they're still trying to figure everything out.

Kennewick Police were searching the area on the corner of Clearwater and Johnson Street. Our NBC Right Now team snapped a picture after midnight of Kennewick Police interviewing people after the incident was reported.

Verizon representatives tell us the suspects appeared to try the back door first. but somehow pried the side door open. The first suspect was wearing somewhat of a distinctive green hoodie sweatshirt but they both used their hoods to cover their faces making it hard to identify them. Two suspects made their way to the back room where the phones are stored.

At one point in the pictures you can actually see part of the second suspect's face but not quite enough to get a good glimpse. After snatching about $15,000 worth of products the two escaped through the back door.

The people at Verizon tell us the store is offering a $1,000 reward for information that could help police locate the thieves.
