Authorities said surveillance video shows the two suspects force their way into an undisclosed Opelika business in the 8000 Block of US Highway 29 North Jan. 30 around 1:25 a.m. CST.

Officials took to Facebook Friday to post still shots that show the suspects and the light-colored newer model Mitsubushi they were believed to have been traveling in.

Further investigation into the incident indicates that those men and that vehicle were also linked to other burglaries throughout Chambers County, Troup County, Muscogee County and Harris County.

Authorities would like anyone with information about the car or suspects to contact the Lee County Sheriff Office at 334-749-5651 or Lee County Crimestoppers at 1-888-522-7847.
