Suffolk County Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in a Main Road burglary on Jan. 13.

Sometime between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. at least one suspect entered MCN Distributors warehouse, located at 121 Main Road, and stole assorted air conditioning equipment by loading it into a box truck (pictured above). The truck was then driven to another location, where the stolen items were removed from the truck, according to a release.

An employee at MCN told a reporter last Thursday that he was held at gunpoint for hours while suspects made several trips with the company truck, transporting stolen goods they forced him to load with a forklift.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
