Two men were arrested after they broke into a Kmart store in San Leandro Christmas morning.

Quan Tran, 36, of Alameda and Edward Tam, 40, of Oakland are charged with commercial burglary.

Police responded to an alarm at the Kmart on Floresta Boulevard around 5 a.m.

Officers say a car parked near the garden center sped away when they arrived.

The men were caught later with thousands of dollars worth of jewelry stolen from the store.
