Above is a video just posted by the Dallas Police Department in which two men smash-n-grab the Brook Mays on John Carpenter, stealing as many instruments as they can get their mitts on in the wee small hours of June 7. But it's a two-parter: A few hours later they're seen again at an Oak Cliff pawn shop, where they attempt to ditch the pilfered booty. DPD needs help ID'ing the men, which shouldn't be too hard, seeing as how toward the end of the video they more or less stop and chat right in front of the pawn shop's surveillance camera.
