Police believe a Canton resident could be responsible for a break-in at Hartville Coin & Jewelry, and an anonymous donor is willing to fork over money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved.
Uniontown police are looking for the masked duo who broke into the Hartville Coin & Jewelry store and fled with an undisclosed amount of jewelry early Thursday morning.
The same pair is suspected of breaking into businesses in Mansfield, Stow and Wayne County, said Capt. David Brown.
The incident took place at 3:30 a.m. at the store at 1015 Edison St. NW when two people in a red sport utility vehicle forced their way into the business, Brown said.
One was described as a black man who is 5 feet, 11 inches to 6 feet tall and about 200 to 225 pounds. He wore black pants and a black jacket and a mask.
Brown said the other burglar was described as 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 11 inches tall and about 120 to 140 pounds. It was difficult to determine whether the burglar is a man or woman.
Police believe one of the suspects lives in Canton, Brown said.
He also said an anonymous donor is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the “subject(s) involved” in the break-in.
Anyone with information should call police at 330-699-6444 or email the captain at email@example.com.
