The two suspects were charged with burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief and dealing in stolen property.
The video, which was recorded in a car, shows the suspects laughing and saying that they stole a safe. The man in the driver’s seat proudly proceeds to reveal his bag of cash to the camera while the other two men cheer.
