(KUTV) — With the public's help, St. George police say they've identified two people suspected of stealing from unlocked cars in church parking lots.

The department posted on Facebook on Monday to notify the public of their search. Hours later, the man and woman were identified, according to the post.

Police had been looking for a man and woman driving a Nevada-licensed vehicle they said was "stolen out of Las Vegas along with a large amount of guns."

The man and woman were said to be visiting church parking lots and taking items out of unlocked vehicles while church was in session.

While the man and woman are said to be identified, they did not appear to have been arrested.

They were considered armed and dangerous.

Police also offered a reminder to remove valuables from cars and keep them locked.
