AVON, Ind. - Avon police were asking for the public’s help to track down a man wanted in connection to a weekend crime spree.
Officers with the Avon Police Department believe Indianapolis resident Anthony Wayne Reed, 53, is responsible for eight business burglaries that happened early Sunday morning.
Police said they found physical evidence that connects Reed to each of the crime scenes.
Reed currently faces multiple burglary charges in Hendricks and Hamilton counties and is suspected in at least 20 burglaries throughout different counties in Indiana.
Reed has served prison time for several burglaries and theft cases in Indiana and was just released from the Hamilton County Jail on June 19.
"We know his DNA profile. We know his fingerprints. So he's a well-known name in the criminal justice system," detective Brian Nugent said.
At one of the burglarized Avon businesses, Reed allegedly got away with less than $30 in petty cash and a laptop computer that he grabbed on the way out.
He was apparently not in a hurry either. Police said he spent two hours rifling through three businesses in the same small office plaza.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also be submitted online at crimetips.org or by texting "INDYCS" plus tip information to 274627.
