According to CrimeStoppers, investigators described both subjects “being between 6’ to 6’2” in height, early to mid 20s.” Also, “one suspect was described as wearing a t-shirt and blue jeans with a black hat and red bandanna. The other was described as wearing a camo jacket with a mask and hood covering his face.”

Powell said the men fled on foot and “were tracked with dogs for a while,” but were “possibly” picked up by vehicle.

He said the Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office will post a video to its Facebook page for the public to view, and that any help from the public in identifying the individuals would be “appreciated.”

Powell said anyone knowing the current whereabouts of these subjects is asked to contact the Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Department at 334-355-4850, the 911 non-emergency office number at 334-355-4485 or CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.
