Business owners on Fredonia Mountain reported to the authorities on Monday that a break-in had occurred at their building on Barbrow Road early Sunday morning, Sept. 18.

Video footage from a security camera shows an adult male on a 4-wheeler approach the 12,000-square-foot building at about 2 a.m. Sunday, according to Sequatchie County Sheriff's Department Detective Jason Harvey.

The building was owned by Mantria Energy until that company closed down, and was sitting vacant for 6-7 years, Harvey said. The new owners of the building, Carbon Black Global LLC, have been renovating the building to put it back into production of charcoal.

The video given to the Sheriff's Department showed an unidentified male on a 4-wheeler who "rode around the building," Harvey said. "He started shaking doors." There were no doors on one side of the building, and apparently the man found his way in there.

"He stole a ladder, a paint sprayer, and a welder," Harvey said. The stolen items are estimated to be worth over $1,000, he said.

"We are working on leads to identify the individual on the 4-wheeler," Harvey said.

Det. Harvey encouraged anyone with information that might lead to an arrest in this case to contact the Sequatchie County Sheriff's Department, at the Justice Center on Fredonia Road, Dunlap.
