The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public's help with identifying two men who they said stole more than $3,000 worth of digital camera equipment from the Shugart Road Walmart.

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.
