LUCEDALE, Miss. (WALA) -- George County Sheriff investigators are seeking the public’s help to try and identify a suspected burglar.

Investigators say on September 10th -- deputies responded to a call at the George County Veterinary Clinic in the 15000 block of Hwy 613 in Lucedale for a burglary. Surveillance footage obtained from the clinic showed a male subject - approximately 5′9″ in height and wearing a face covering, a ball cap with a distinctive brim, and a wallet chain on his right hip - made entry into the clinic at around 1:00 a.m.

The male subject stole several Civil War-era replica firearms from inside the building. These firearms include three fully functional reproduction Remington-type cap-and-ball revolvers, as well as two fully functional reproduction muzzle-loading Civil War-style carbines.

The sheriff’s office posted a picture of the suspect and firearms similar to the ones that were stolen on their Facebook page.
