Two punks smashed their way through the front door of a Seattle-area market late Friday, making off with beer and cigarettes, and leaving a high-quality video in their destructive wake.

The footage, obtained by Q13-FOX, chronicles the bumbling crooks as they smash the glass front door of a Ravensdale market that night. After a few failed attempts, they take to using kicks and body slams to break through the entrance.

One of the perps, who lifted two 18-packs of Budweiser, was seen with panty-hose on his face, a blue jacket and black pants. Another young man can be seen stealing two armfuls of smokes.

The Kings County Sheriff's Office is on the lookout for the thieves -- and thanks to this video, they have technology on their side.

The age-old crime of burgling is getting more difficult because of tracking technology available with some high-end gadgets. For example, on iPhones and iPads -- some of the hottest items on the black market today -- a function called "Find My iPhone" has helped victims find the jerks who stole their Apple devices, according to iTWire.

The function can track a user's phone by way of GPS, providing victims and cops with a pinpoint location of the perp.
