On Tuesday evening, the sheriff’s office released surveillance photos showing the suspect.

On Wednesday, authorities said they had gotten several tips about the suspects’ identities. They said those names would be released after the suspects are arrested and charged.

The sheriff’s office thanked the public for the help.
