The hunt is on for two suspects who stole a safe from a Minnesota home, which is said to contain property worth $1 million.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) has issued an appeal for help identifying the two suspected of the theft at a home in Belle Plaine on May 11.

The pair posed as roofers to access a home belonging to two retired doctors. While one of them distracted the homeowner, the other took the safe from the bedroom and walked it outside to their light tan-colored, extended cab Chevrolet pickup.

According to KARE 11, the contents of the safe are said to be worth $1 million, though details of what's inside have not been released.

The first suspect is described as a 50-year-old man with a deep tan, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and around 150 pounds. He possibly had a southern accent.

The other is aged about 30, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds and with no upper teeth. KSTP says they could be father and son.

The Chevrolet they were driving is a newer model and had a wooden rack on the site. It is believed the pair are involved in similar crimes in Wisconsin, stealing safes, money and jewelry from victims, the BCA says.

Anyone with information should call Belle Plaine Police Department on 952-873-4307.
