Hancock sheriff's officials need help identifying two people accused of trying to break in to Dylan's Seafood market in Bay St. Louis.

Two unidentified people were caught on camera when they tried to break in at a seafood business, but they ran off when the burglar alarm sounded, Police Lt. Don Gray said.

Hancock County sheriff’s detectives are assisting the Bay St. Louis Police Department in the investigation of the attempted break-in at Dylan’s Seafood. Both agencies are asking the public for information to help identify the suspects.

The burglary attempt occurred about 3 a.m. Friday at the restaurant and market at Washington Street and Old Spanish Trail, Gray said. The suspects left before they could take anything, he said.

The sheriff’s office posted surveillance video on Facebook later Friday. Chief Investigator Glenn Grannan said his investigators are trying to help solve the case.

The two suspects were wearing hoodies and backpacks. They can be seen walking around the perimeter of the store, breaking the front window and then abruptly running away.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to email Gray at dgray@baystlouis-ms.gov or call Hancock County Central Dispatch at 228-255-9191 and ask for Gray.

Tipsters also can call Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-7878-5898 or give a tip online at www.mscoastcrimestoppers.com.
