(Atlanta Police Department)

Officers are asking the public for help identifying three men accused of breaking into a car in southwest Atlanta.

Officials say the theft happened on Feb. 7 at a home on Howell Drive.

According to the police report, the victim had parked his SUV in his mother's driveway and left its doors unlocked while he dropped off a pizza for his aunt and mother. The man then used the bathroom and talked with his mother for a little while.

In that short time, officials say someone went into the man's SUV and stole his work bag, laptop, work ID, cell phone, driver's license, and wallet.

Investigators shared a short bit of footage showing three men who are believed to be connected with the theft.
