The Bakersfield Police Department is searching for two suspects who were caught on camera in southwest Bakersfield Monday. 

It happened around 9:45 a.m. Monday on Mersham Hill Drive near Stockdale Highway and Old River Road. 

In the video obtained by 23ABC, you see one suspect in a black shirt go and knock on the front door of the home while on the phone. In the second video, another suspect in a white shirt walks up to the door with him. 

The man in the black shirt tries the door handle which appears to be locked. Shortly after, the man in the white shirt tries twice to kick in the front door. 

Bakersfield Police said Tuesday detectives are actively searching for the two suspects seen in the video. 

Officials said there was at least one other incident in the area Monday, but detectives are still working to determine whether or not the two incidents were related. 

Bakersfield Police said they will be releasing the suspect vehicle description in the near future. 

BPD is asking anyone with information about who the two men are in the video to call the lead detective at 326-3919.
