A local police department is looking for the community’s help in solving a burglary case — and the business owner is offering a reward.
A $500 reward has been offered for the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for a burglary on Dec. 29-30 at Captain D’s located on West Columbia Street in Farmington.
Farmington Police Chief Rick Baker said officers were dispatched to the restaurant on Dec. 31 after an employee opening the store for the business day noticed several deposits were missing.
The report states the employee did not notice any signs of forced entry. After reviewing security footage, Baker said, a subject was seen entering through a door on the west side of the restaurant.
On Friday, the Farmington Police Department posted surveillance images showing an individual in the restaurant.
The individual in the video is seen wearing a dark hoody, blue jeans, a bandana over their face and what appear to be boots.
“The hoody is unique in that it contained a graphic on the front of something red — possibly a tear drop — with three white horizontal lines next to (the tear drop). The white lines appear to be reflective,” Baker said.
In addition, the report states the video reflects the individual appears to be familiar with the inside of the restaurant. Further review of the video showed an individual entering the restaurant on Dec. 29 and Dec. 30.
Those with information on the burglaries are asked to contact Detective Bill Gammon at 573-756-6686 or by private message on the department’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/FarmingtonPoliceDepartment.
