THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -  Two men removed a bumper and tail light from a truck at a car dealership in Thomasville.

And it was all caught on camera.

Investigators believe these crooks knew exactly what they were doing. 

Surveillance photos are all investigators have as they continue to search for these two men. 

Lieutenant Tim Watkins with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office said, “We're hoping somebody will either recognize the people that are walking in the video, or basically recognize the truck that was used.”

Investigators said the two men were driving a 2013 or newer white Toyota Tacoma when they pulled into Thomasville Toyota late Tuesday night.

Captain Steve Jones said, “It was just sitting out on the lot, just like any other car lots.  The vehicle was just sitting out there.”

Surveillance footage shows the men stealing parts from a 2015 Tacoma parked on the side of the dealership. 

“They removed the light sections, they removed the bumper, and they did damage to the wiring harness,” said Lt. Watkins

The damage will cost the dealership close to $3,000. 

Captain Jones said, “Not only did they just take the parts, but they did damage to the car because they cut the wiring from several places.  So it did a whole lot more than just the cost of the parts.” 

And investigators said these two men, believed to be white men in their mid twenties, knew exactly how to remove these parts easily. 

“Yeah, we think they have had some type of experience stealing that type of equipment, yes,” said Lt. Watkins. 

If you have any information regarding these two suspects or the vehicle, you are asked to call the Thomas County Sheriff's Office at 229-225-3300.
