CAMDEN, S.C.: Like deer trapped in the headlights, two burglars have been captured by outdoor wildlife cameras in South Carolina.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said a homeowner's camera recorded images of the thieves, who are accused of stealing a separate deer camera from the home and electronics from other homes. Matthews said an officer from another county and a resident identified the men, one of whom was recorded urinating off the front porch of a home.

Matthews said 34-year-old Shondale Ingham and 48-year-old Sandy Tarte are each charged with five counts of burglary. Court records didn't indicate whether they had attorneys.

The sheriff said the men stole one deer camera from the home, but missed another that made the clear images of their faces.
