Silent Witness is asking for the public's help in identifying two men who allegedly used a suitcase to steal from a Phoenix Costco. 

Authorities say on March 18 just before 6 p.m. two suspects entered the Costco warehouse near 19th Avenue and Camelback Road. 

The two suspects placed a Night Owl Security System and a Sony Speaker in a Perry Ellis suitcase, Silent Witness said. 

An employee approached one of the suspects as he was trying to leave the store. The suspect then grabbed the suitcase and ran to the parking lot and placed the suitcase in the bed of a truck. 

As employees attempted to retrieve the suitcase the second suspect allegedly displayed a gun in his waistband and said, "You didn't see anything."

The two then fled the area. The truck is described as white pickup truck, possibly a Dodge. 

If you have any information on this incident or the identity of these men you are asked to call 480-WITNESS.
