Investigators are seeking the public's help in locating a man suspected of stealing a loaded gun during a home burglary in Rainbow, it was announced Wednesday.

The burglary took place on Feb. 10 at a home located on Rice Canyon Road, according to San Diego County Crime Stoppers.

Surveillance cameras documented the entire incident, in which the man is believed to have taken a loaded, semi-automatic firearm. Authorities did not say what else the man may have stolen from the home.

The suspect was described as a white man in his 30s or 40s with a thin build and sunken face, and with unknown wrist and forearm tattoos, according to Crime Stoppers. He was wearing a dark-colored baseball cap, dark hoodie and blue jeans, and was seen leaving in a late-model, bright blue Ford Fusion.

Crime Stoppers said a $1,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the man's arrest, and asked anyone who can help identify or locate the man to call the Fallbrook Sheriff's Station at 760-451-3100 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
