Surveillance cameras, an alarm system and a cinderblock wall didn’t stop thieves from breaking into a Michigan store and making off with over $2 million in merchandise, police said.

According to the Troy Police Department, multiple burglars cut a hole, roughly 3 feet high and 3 feet wide, through the wall of Super Fair Cellular the night of Oct. 16, and slipped inside, WJBK reported. The crew robbed the store sometime between about 7 p.m. and midnight, police said.

Once inside, the suspects stole 30,000 cellphones, police told WDIV. They also took some bins and equipment from the store, including a pallet jack.

Investigators estimate the total value of the phones at $2 million, outlets reported.

The alarm and camera systems were damaged during the burglary, according to The Oakland Press.

The suspects have not been found.

Troy is a suburb north of Detroit and boasts a population of around 87,000.
