Perryville police chief Keith Tarillion said the two men entered the building during business hours and hid in a room until the park center closed.
"They came out from where they were hiding around 11:30 p.m. and wandered around the building until they found a small amount of cash to steal," Tarillion said. "They ended up taking less than $100."
Tarillion said the men then hid in the building overnight and exited with a group of people when the park center reopened the next morning.
Police released surveillance photos of the two men on Wednesday and are asking the public for help in identifying the two suspects by calling the Perryville Police Department at 573-547-4546. Callers can remain anonymous.
