The FBI has released photographs of the two men wanted for questioning in a series of break-ins in northwest Houston.
Authorities said during the latest crime spree, burglars broke into the home of an FBI agent and stole government weapons, along with the agent’s personal property.
The burglary took place on September 23 at the agent’s home located in the area of Hollister and West Little York.
The next day, the wanted men were seen on surveillance cameras at the Willowbrook Mall using the agent's personal credit cards during a shopping spree.
"We have surveillance video of these two men basically going on a shopping spree at Willowbrook Mall, using credit cards there," said special agent Shawna Dunlap.
Authorities said the burglary at the agent’s house is one of several break-ins to occur in the area over the past several months.
"There have been several break-ins in several months since July in fact, in this particular area," said Dunlap.
Among the government property taken were a Remington 870 short-barreled shotgun and a Glock-22 handgun, both secured in a green gun locker, which was also stolen.
The FBI said the stolen Glock-22 handgun was recovered by authorities during a suspicious vehicle stop over the weekend. One man was taken into custody in that case. Officials did not release information about the person in custody.
The Remington 870 short-barreled shotgun is still missing.
The FBI is looking for information about these two men or others who may have been involved in the crimes.
One man is described as a Hispanic male, with a heavy-set build. On September 24, he was seen wearing a white t-shirt with the logo “Play Cloths High Rollers” on the front. The second man is described as a taller Hispanic male, with a thin build. He was seen wearing a red shirt with the logo "Ca$h Only" on the front of the t-shirt on that day. He also had a large gold chain around his neck and a large white wrist watch.
Authorities said the men were last seen driving away from the Willowbrook mall in a black four-door sedan.
