SAN DIEGO — A bar and restaurant in San Diego offered 22 cent beers for 22 minutes Tuesday to poke fun at burglars who stole $22.

All 22 of the draft beers were discounted at Home and Away exactly 36 hours after the 3:07 a.m. break-in.

"Just the whole thing is extremely ironic and funny," employee Jason Clay said. "The comedic value I got was thinking about the time that they gambled with their life to get the amount that they did, and drilling that safe open and seeing the $22 that was in there. That's the best part."

Surveillance video shows two men with baggy pants forcing their way into the bar Monday at 3:07 a.m. One tries unsuccessfully to pry open a cash register, then joins his partner in a back room where the two grab the safes. While leaving, they fumble the safes and nearly drop their drawers.

"They were probably Raiders fans," Clay deadpanned, gesturing to his Kansas City Chiefs hat.

The suspects have not been identified.
