PHILADELPHIA, Tenn. (WBIR) -- A Loudon County family already dealing with loss suffered another blow, thanks to two burglars. However, their low blow was all caught on camera -- and now authorities have a better picture on who the suspects are.

The Hickman family of Philadelphia, Tenn. lost their house from an October fire, destroying nearly everything they had.

Of the few items they had left, two burglars targeted copper wiring recovered from the house.

"Found that storage building had been broken into, like someone had tried to take the tractor from the property. Noticed in the storage unit, he had a 55-gallon plastic drum that had different kinds of copper in it," Loudon County sheriff's investigator Jeff Russell said.
