The Gotta Stop convenience store has been burglarized three times since June and Crime Stoppers of Wichita-Sedgwick County hopes someone will recognize the alleged burglars.

Sometime after midnight on June 21, two men got into the store, at 5600 West MacArthur, near Hoover Road, and stole a safe with cash inside. Their faces were covered, Crime Stoppers said on their Facebook page.

The same thing happened six days later around 2 a.m.

On July 27, two men with covered faces broke in and tried stealing the safe, but were unable because it was bolted down.
