A breaking and entering resulting in stolen equipment has been reported at the former Giar's Grocery on Rt. 16 near Orma.

Owner Carol Giar said a new Troy-Bilt 5,500 watt generator, red in color, was stolen between January 22, 2007 and March 2, 2007.

Giar is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of individuals who took the generator.

She said the closed store has been the object of vandals who broke out the front windows Thanksgiving weekend, 2006.

"I really would appreciate any information regarding this theft," said Giar, who can be contacted at 304-422-2269, or
