Authorities in Palmdale are seeking the public’s help in identifying two burglary suspects who were captured on a home video surveillance system as they stole items from the residence.

According to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, two males climbed through a rear window of a home in the 38000 block of 20th Street East around 2 p.m. Jan. 16 and ransacked the place.
