Madera County Sheriff John Anderson is releasing snapshots pulled from surveillance tape showing one of two burglars breaking into Hurst Hardware in Madera Ranchos last month.
Shortly after 4 a.m. June 19, sheriffs deputies responded to the hardware store located on Berkshire Drive. The door to the back of the building was open, and whoever went inside vanished before deputies arrived.
Two men captured on tape can be seen running through the aisles of the store grabbing items off the shelves. Numerous tools. valued at almost $2,000, were stolen, including a 120 volt hammer drill, several circular saws, an angle grinder, batteries and a battery pack.
After careful review of the surveillance video, detectives were able to pull two still shots that offer the best view of one of the suspects.
Anyone with information about the break-in and suspects involved is urged to call the Sheriffs Office at (559) 675-7770 or CRIME STOPPERS at 498-STOP.
