State police in Uniontown are seeking information about a man who has been stealing all-terrain vehicles recently in southern Fayette County.

State police believe the suspect may be responsible for several thefts in recent weeks.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid- to late 20s, approximately 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 250 pounds. Police said he has red hair, with a red beard and has facial acne, according to photographs taken by a surveillance camera.

Police said the thief also has a purple studded tongue ring.

Trooper Stefani Plume said investigators believe the suspect is either from the southern part of the county or possibly the northern part of West Virginia.

Fayette County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the thefts.

Plume noted that callers can remain anonymous.

Anyone with information can call 724-439-7111.
