A $500 reward is being offered for information leading the arrest and conviction of a man wanted for breaking into a Fawn business Sunday night.

Bruce Banning, owner of Banning Industries, a specialty metals company, is offering the reward to help capture the man who tripped motion sensor lights and surveillance cameras after smashing a door about 7 p.m. Sunday night.

Police also have footage of the car the man hastily drove off in from the Howes Run Road business.

Fawn police Chief Tim Mayberry said the suspect started to look up and had a surprised look on his face.

“He probably saw the cameras,” Mayberry said.

The intruder disconnected a truck battery and appeared to have carried it around before discarding it, police said.

“So far, it doesn't appear anything was taken,” Mayberry said.

The man left in a dark, smaller mid-sized sedan. It had a broken right rear window that was covered by plastic, the chief said.

Last month, someone stole metal from Banning Industries and removed tools and items that Banning employees were using for several contracts. The company refurbishes items for power plants and does other work.

“It was an insurance issue last time, with two broken windows and metal taken,” Banning said. “This time, a door was smashed.

“We're hoping the reward will persuade someone who knows the guy to call police.”It's unclear if the November burglary was connected to some in nearby communities, Mayberry said.

Last month, someone yanked copper pipes and other metal out of nine houses in West Deer and three more in Fawn. Those are besides the first break-in at Banning Industries.
