A brazen convenience store burglary was caught on video, and Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.

About 12:30 p.m. on April 21, a man walked into the Hico at 1201 N. Barker Road and stole cash from an office while the clerk helped a customer.

Surveillance video shows a heavy set, older man with white or gray hair walking into a room and rummaging through an open safe, then returning to grab money from a bank deposit bag left on a desk.

Police estimate the man to be in his 60s and about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10.

Anyone with information on the crime or a suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (509) 327-5111 or submit tips online at
