    Police are searching for four armed men who on late Thursday robbed a grocery store in San Jose.

    Surveillance video captured the crime and shows robbers entering Mi Tierra wearing masks and armed with handguns.

    The store clerk said she was counting money right before the robbery.

    Two other men broke into the back office and got away with an undisclosed amount of money and grocery store records.

    Cesar Pascal, who owns a jewelry store next door said police response times have been an issue.

    "It takes a long time for police to respond in San Jose," Pascal said. "We have a lot of systems to notify police. It's sad for our businesses."

    Pascal said his store was robbed last year and his was home was broken into on Fourth of July. He and other business owners have been asking city leaders for more police, but they think politics are getting in the way of safety for residents.

    "We are hoping to get more police officers," Pascal said.

    San Jose police said they are unable to comment on the robbery. It was not immediately known if any arrests have been made in the case.
