The Dakota County Sheriff's office is looking for some help identifying two individuals suspected of breaking into Peine Plumbing in Empire Township last week.


The two suspects, both men, were captured on a security camera while they were forcing open a rear door. The break-in occurred around 4:30 a.m. June 3, according to Captain Jim Rogers.

Deputies believe the men were driving a red Chevy Cobalt.

The department put photos of the men on its Facebook page this week and asked residents for their help identifying them.

"We've had pretty good luck with that, putting things on Facebook," Rogers said.
