In what was apparently a well-orchestrated robbery, three quick-footed thieves broke into the Muscle Maker Grill on Thursday morning and emptied the safe in three minutes flat. Is that a world record?

Fox 4 reports that a door was smashed at the health-focused Greenville Ave eatery with a pry bar at 6 a.m. yesterday. Surveillance footage captured three men prowling around the restaurant before walking directly to the safe, destroying it, and making off with the cash inside.

According to owner Miguel Martinez, the thieves seemed to know exactly where to find their target. "I think we're gonna be fine," Martinez told Fox 4. "I'm just happy no one was here when it did happen. We've built a good team and we'll recover from it."

Images captured by the restaurant’s security cameras provide little insight into the identities of the men, who were all wearing masks. On the bright side, the damage caused during the robbery did not force Muscle Maker Grill to close its doors.
