Authorities in Norwalk are looking for two teen boys who made quite an impression via video during a recent burglary at a church. While stealing the video camera set up at the LVN Church, the thieves just about smiled for the camera as it captured their images.

The crime took place mid-March, according to deputies at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Norwalk Station, reports City News Service. The culprits were caught on tape by the very same camera they removed from the church wall, and clear images of the suspects were captured.

The teen burglars, who left the scene on bikes, were both described as being about 5 foot 7 inches and 150 pounds. One had a shaved head and brown eyes, and the other had a mustache.

The LASD has images from the camera of the crime online.
