JANESVILLE—Voigt Music Center is offering a reward to the first identification of a man shown in a store video, that leads to an arrest for theft of a microphone.

The Janesville Police Department posted the video and a still photo from the video on its Facebook page.

Voigt’s own Facebook post states the man shown in the video stole a $399 Shure SM7B studio microphone.

The store at 34 S. Main St. is offering a $100 cash reward or a $200 in-store credit as a reward.

Anyone with information can contact Janesville police at 608-755-3100, Janesville Area Crime Stoppers at 608-756-3636, or download the free “P3 tips” app at the Apple store or Google play store to give crime tips anonymously.

Voigt says the theft occurred around noon Tuesday, when someone unscrewed the microphone from its stand, put the microphone in his pocket, dropped the empty stand at the store’s rear basement staircase and walked out the back door.

The video shows someone with his back to the camera, so what he is doing is not clear. A still photo of the man’s face from another part of the video also is included.
