Surveillance video was obtained of the suspects and the clothing they were wearing.  

On Monday, officers observed both suspects walking in Hanover in the same clothing worn by the men in the video, police said.  

After returning to police headquarters, they were determined to be the men seen taking items out of the residence in the video, according to police. Multiple stolen items were found in their possession as well as in a hotel room they had stayed in.  

A preliminary hearing for both men on those charges will be held Dec. 13.
