Two men from the Bronx are facing felony and misdemeanor charges after Colonie police say they broke into Smoker's Choice on Sand Creek Rd. on Tuesday, and tried to take cash from the ATM machine inside.

35-year-old Liridon Gashi and 34-year-old Granit Tahiri were taken into custody in the parking lot of Colonie Center.

Police believe the two may also have been involved in another burglary, at the Men's, Inc. Barber Shop on Central Ave. The shop, which has been closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, was broken into and an attempt was made to steal cash from an ATM machine.
