Detectives are hoping a reward will help track down the person who set a Walmart on fire and stole electronics.

Newscenter 16 obtained surveillance video Monday that shows a masked man setting fire in the clothing section of the Niles Walmart early Sunday morning.

He then smashed an electronics display case and took off with some Apple products.

Surveillance shows a similar looking suspect --without a mask-- trying to access the same electronics case the night before.

Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

They described the suspect as a white man, thin build, wearing brown pants, a dark colored shirt, and a mask.

He left Sunday's scene in a dark colored, four-door sedan.
