An unidentified Hispanic man was caught on camera taking tools from a Hartford business, according to deputies.

The Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office released images of the suspect who broke into Solo Stone located on Highway 96 on July 8.

"The owner had left the business for a short time to go pick up a crew,” said Sgt. Anthony Sacco. “While he was gone a Hispanic male in a light blue pickup truck came to the business."

Luckily the business owner had security cameras installed. Sacco said the robber was in and out in about 15 minutes.

"It shows him going in and out of the building a couple times like he appears to hear something and when he realizes nobody's there he continues to gather tools," said Sacco.

He took several tools from the business including a chainsaw, a cordless drill, and a nail gun. The suspect appears to have dark hair that is longer in back, a thin beard and mustache. Surveillance video also captured images of his vehicle which appears to be a 2000’s model Chevy S-10 pickup with a fading paint job.

The man is now wanted for commercial burglary.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers (479) 78-CRIME.
