The IT specialists at Rutherford County Sheriff's Office have enhanced security footage from The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro to show two masked men placing bacon outside the mosque around 3 a.m. July 10.

"In (the video) you can see there's a shorter, very muscular man wearing a spray painting respirator and some sort of tight hood. He's wearing what appears to be a tight short-sleeved jumpsuit with a patch on the right shoulder. He has dark athletic shoes with reflective tape on the sides," said Detective Sgt. Dan Goodwin in an email.

"The second man is much taller and very husky. He's wearing a werewolf or other hairy Halloween mask. He has on a T-shirt, long shorts and boots. The T-shirt has a white graphic on right 'angel wing' area of the back that looks like it might be a giraffe."

Based on the men's distinct, muscular builds, the detective hopes someone recognizes them from "local fitness, MMA or traditional martial arts businesses or gyms."

In the video clip they appear to be taking cellphone photos of their vandalism and holding empty bacon packages.

The bacon, along with green spray paint defacing the property with "f--- Allah" and "We are vandal group," was discovered July 14.
