Dalton, Ga., police are looking for two men who broke into the Walmart on Shugart Road and stealing more than $3,000 worth of digital camera equipment.

A surveillance video shows the men walking into the store and picking up a blue plastic tote before heading to the camera display in the electronic department, police spokesman Bruce Frazier said.

The men forced open the glass display and took two cameras, a Canon Rebel TZI valued at $799 and a Canon T3I Kit valued at $2,697, Frazier said. They also took a Canon 55-250 lens valued at $299, he said.

The men put the equipment in the tote and hauled it over the fence in the outdoor section of the garden department onto a rack, Frazier said. After they walked out the front door, the men hauled the tote away in a dark Jeep Cherokee, he said.

Anyone with information on the identity of these two men is asked to contact Detective Jason Bishop with the Dalton Police Department at 706-278-9085, extension 214.
