Police say the men tried opening this SUV, but it was locked, so they kept going.

Jacksonville police are asking for help catching the men who they say stole a gun that was used to kill a police officer.

The Sheriff’s Office has released a video and photos of two men trying to open the door of a car in the Bartram Springs area last summer. The two are wanted in connection with burglaries of several cars parked on Wind Cave Avenue in the early morning hours of August 5.

Police say a gun they stole was then used in the shooting death of Tarpon Springs Police Officer Charles Kondek two weeks ago.

Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $3,000 reward for information about the men’s identity or whereabouts.
