State Police in Mount Pleasant say the two men in this video broke into a house and stole guns, jewelry and TV's.

They want people to keep a close eye out for suspicious activity.

"Definitely if you're seeing vehicles going down the road that might look a little suspicious or might be driving slow  because we have a feeling these guys might be scoping out the area before they go into these houses like they're doing some surveillance work," says Trooper Brent Haag of the Michigan State Police. 

Police take this case seriously and hope this video and tips from the public can help them catch the two thieves.

"We're taking this real seriously because with these guys they obviously went into this house with these firearms and possibly intentions and using them if someone happened to be in the residence," says Haag. 

People who live in the community say this is a quite neighborhood where everyone knows each other.

"It scared me and shock me. I couldn't believe that I've lived here for about 30 years and I've never even heard of anything like that in this area so that surprised me. You've got to remember to lock your doors put some lights on timers i think that's the safest thing to do," says Sarah Wells who lives in the area," says Sarah Wells who lives in the area.
