MARSTA, Sweden, April 8 (UPI) -- Police in Sweden said a pair of men who perpetrated a daylight robbery at an electronics store were recorded by witnesses.

Investigators said the men, wearing yellow tracksuits, masks and sunglasses, smashed the front door of the store in Marsta at 7:30 a.m. Saturday and witnesses alerted by the sound of security alarms took cellphone pictures and video of the men, The Local.se reported Monday.

Police said the crime did not go well. The two men had trouble cramming all of their loot, including four flat screen TVs, into their small getaway car.

Police said the plastic bag disguising the vehicle's license plate flew off as the men drove away, allowing witnesses to get pictures of the plates.

"They are known to police. The investigation is looking good," police spokesman Peter Eriksson said of the suspects.
