Two suspects forced entry to a rural Orion building and removed several guns worth several thousand dollars.

Both the suspects and their vehicle were captured on security cameras and images are included below.

One was wearing a Dale Earnhardt, Jr. jacket with the large number "8″ on it.

The other suspect wore a lighter colored jacket and was possibly wearing glasses.

Both suspects obscured their faces.

"Quite often these guns go right to the street ," said Henry County Sheriff, Jim Padilla. "We just don't want them to get in the wrong hands and cause injury to somebody."
