The owner of a small Texas grocery is fighting fack against criminals who he says has stolen from him.

Security camera photographs are now posted on the front windows of the Happy Land food store in north Houston.

Authorities say the people in the photos are wanted for stealing from the store.

The signs include the case number, the date the crime was committed, and contact information for the police officer working the case.

Many shoppers say they support the owner's actions.
