The side entrance to the home, the apparently entry point by the burglar or burglars, was dusted for fingerprint evidence by the Cannon County Sheriff's Dept.
A Lonnie Smith Road man is offering a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who broke into his home this morning.
Items reported missing include guns, ammunition and jewelry.
Homeowner Patrick Cecil estimates the break-in and burglary occurred sometime between 10 and 11 a.m. He said the home had been unoccupied a short amount of time, leading him to believe that the home was being watched.
The Cannon County Sheriff's Department responded to a 911 call and investigated the incident. They dusted a side door and a gun case in the home for fingerprint evidence.
Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact the sheriff's department at 615-563-1000.
