ARLINGTON, GA (WALB) -

The manager of The Damascus Peanut Plant is offering a reward after two thieves broke in and made off with thousands of dollars worth of equipment. The entire crime was caught on camera.

 

Just before 3am Monday morning thieves cut a hole in the fence near the warehouse where the equipment was kept and stole two welders, a pressure washer, as well as blow torches and bottles to go with them. The plant wasn't aware of the missing equipment until they conducted inventory. That's when they got police involved.

 

"I think they knew what they were after, because they didn't try to come in the building. They didn't look for anything else, we didn't see anything else on camera, they knew what they were after and went straight for it," said plant manager Jeff Roland.

The plant is offering a $500 reward and if you recognize anyone from the surveillance video, call Arlington police at 229.725.4211
