— Sheriff's deputies are hoping home surveillance video will help them capture two men wanted in connection with a break-in and burglary at a Durham home.

The video captured two men stealing valuables from a home in the 800 block of South Mineral Springs Road around 10:50 a.m. on June 16.

Two dogs were inside the home at the time, the video shows. One man has a shovel and appears to hold it up to keep the dogs away. Another man is carrying a television out the side door of a family room.

The dogs were not harmed, the sheriff's office said.

Anyone with information that can help investigators is asked to contact the Durham County Sheriff's Office at 919-560-0880 or Durham Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

    Looks like they need new dogs too.

    these individuals should be additionally charged with Cruelty to animals. They did cause or procure torment by wielding a shovel to threaten the dogs. Additionally, they did not secure the door behind them that would have allowed the dogs to be kept in a secured area. I hope they catch these criminals.

    Did they also use the shovel to pry the door open?

    Did they tunnel in to the house?

    Posting the pic of the video takes some pressure off of WRAL, now they dont have to give a vague description of "t-shirt and blue jeans" like they always do
