Northern Territory Police are investigating an unlawful entry of a service station in Alice Springs early Tuesday morning.

At 2:16am police responded to an unlawful entry alarm at a service station on Larapinta Drive.

CCTV footage from the business shows two unknown men gain entry via the rear of the building and walking around the store before the alarm activated. The pair fled the store, but not before stealing a box of chocolates.
