Police Looking for Burglary Suspect in Surveillance Video

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Hillbilly Hot Dogs in Huntington is no stranger to busy business.

However, one customer Monday night was going for the finances more than the franks.

"It was $500-600 dollars total," owner Sonny Knight recalls of the amount stolen.

However, it's not the money that has Knight fired up.

"The disaster they left was just cremated," said Knight. "It just looks terrible."

From crates to cartons, this thief spent precious time ransacking every crevice.

He even busted through locked doors, trying to locate important documents.

With Sonny and his wife tested time and time again, having been broken into six times in eight years, this latest incident has forced them to consider closing shop.

"We work hard to keep it going. You know, we're a mom and pop. It's hard anyways trying to keep things afloat," said Knight.

They just want to operate the restaurant they love, without the heat that comes from people like the suspect caught on camera.

"We want justice," remarked Knight. "We want this person caught and pay their due."

The Knights are offering a reward for anyone with information. They says they will give away 100 of their signature hot dogs free of charge to anyone who can identify the person in the video and help bring them in.
