Police are on the lookout for four young men who broke into a spectacle shop in Sävsjö in southern Sweden on Tuesday night.

The men are well-prepared for the rays of the summer having made off with 250,000 kronor ($36,000) worth of sunglasses.

They fled the scene armed with around a hundred pairs of designer shades after breaking a window to gain access to the goods.
