A Shawnee sawmill owner hopes reward money will help nab a couple of thieves.

Surveillance video showed thieves breaking in to Tony Wall's Shawnee Sawmill early Sunday and Monday morning.

Around 3 a.m. Monday, the bad guys hauled one of Wall's $20,000 bulldozers out on one of Wall's trailers that he said costs another $8,000.

Surveillance cameras caught all of it on tape. Wall has turned that video over to police. He's offering a $500 reward for information leading to arrests.

"It's the kind of equipment that is not inexpensive," said Wall. "It takes a lot of hard work to get to the point to buy one piece, much less enough to start a business that can employ people."

Wall is offering another $500 if the arrests lead to convictions.
