When burglars broke into a Chamblee convenience store they were in for a surprise.

CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- Police made a valuable discovery in an unusual place after they arrested two men following a police chase in Chamblee last week. 

Police said officers responded to a burglary in progress at 3160 Chamblee Dunwoody Road on Thursday, Aug. 24.  Officers arrived on scene with their blue lights off.  Moments later, police witnessed three black males running out the Food Mart and toward a Toyota Avalon.

Chamblee police rammed the front bumper of the suspects' vehicle. The three men then attempted to flee on foot.  One of the men was tasered and arrested.  A second man was arrested hiding in the bed of a truck, and the third man got away.

Dash cam video showed the moments leading up to the arrests. 

The suspects were identified as Sydney Terrell Clark and Quinton L. Samples. 

Both suspects where transported to the Chamblee Police Department.  While in the booking area, officers noticed Clark kept grabbing near his crotch area. Police conducted a search and more than $20,000 fell onto the intake floor.

In all, police recovered more than $20,000, a handgun, several crowbars and screw drivers and a bag full of wrapped coins.

Both men are charged with burglary, obstruction of officers, and criminal trespass.
