VISTA, Calif. - The owner of a pub in Vista posted pictures to Facebook Wednesday of two men who broke in and ransacked his business.

Two burglars were in the closed pub located at 230 S. Santa Avenue early Monday morning for about two hours, according to Roddy Browning, owner of Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen.  They ended up taking around $5000 worth of items, including a custom bicycle, vintage silver ashtrays and dishware.

Photos show two men with backpacks going through boxes in a storage area before one of them rolls a bicycle out of the room.

Browning's Facebook post asked the community to help identify the two robbers.

"They made off with lots of expensive equipment and a ton of vintage antiques!!!!! They came and first stole our dishwashers bike then came back 10 min later and spent and hour taking everything they could!! They have to be local!!!!"

The pub has been open for six weeks and Browning intended to use the vintage ashtrays as an art installation in the restaurant.

Browning is warning the public that the thieves are probably in the area.  He said a pastor contacted him Wednesday afternoon to tell him that he saw one of the men riding the stolen bike in Vista.

San Diego County Sheriff's detectives were investigating.
