A reward of $500 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a recent break-in of a self-storage unit that netted burglars nearly $18,000 in McDuffie County.
Investigator Al Reeves of the McDuffie County Sheriff's Department said authorities have little to go on as far as leads.
"We're seeking the public's help in solving this case," Investigator Reeves told The McDuffie Mirror during an interview last Friday.
"We're hoping somebody saw something or heard about somebody having committed this crime."
The break-in of the temperature-regulated building occurred at I-20 Self-Storage, 1840 Dallas Drive, sometime between Dec. 20 and Jan. 9 Investigator Reeves said.
The lawman said the burglar or burglars made off with assorted furniture and appliances, including two plasma televisions and a dual Whirlpool washer and dryer.
The items had been stored there since September.
"Some really nice things were taken from the owners," Investigator Reeves said.
The owners of the stolen merchandise have decided to offer a cash reward in hopes of authorities finding those responsible for the crime.
Anyone with information about this case should contact the McDuffie County Sheriff's Department at (706) 595-2040 or (706) 595-2145. All information will remain confidential, according to Investigator Reeves.
