Prince William County police are searching for a man who is suspected to have stolen approximately $10,000 worth of guns from a Manassas-area firearms store and is believed to be armed and dangerous.
Michael Wayne Lewis II, 29, is wanted in connection with the recent burglary of Dominion Arms Corporation firearm store in which 19 guns were stolen, said 1st Sgt. Kim Chinn, police spokeswoman.
Lewis is believed to still be in possession of the weapons, Chinn said.
Around 1:45 a.m. Aug. 7, police responded to an alarm at Dominion Arms, 7549 Centreville Road.
According to police, the burglar got into the gun shop by breaking into the adjacent business, Interamerica Express Travel Agency, and digging a large hold in the wall that divided the businesses.
Police do not know where Lewis lives, but said he is known to frequent the Manassas area and might be driving a burgundy minivan with personalized tags.
Lewis is a white man, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 170 pounds, according to police. He has brown hair, which might be long, Chinn said, and brown eyes. He is known to wear a blue bandanna.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Lewis is asked to call Prince William County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS. Callers don't have to give their name, just the information, and could earn up to a $1,000 cash reward.
