Around $60,000 worth of equipment was stolen Aug. 7 from Independence, Mo.-based Wright Dentures and Implants, according to local Fox affiliate WDAF.

Surveillance cameras show the break in took place around 2 a.m. The suspect is seen wearing a sweatshirt, backpack and facemask.

Wright Dentures and Implants said four laptops were stolen along with cash and thousands of dollars in dental implants. The practice is offering a reward for people who come forward with information.

"Dental implants, that is what we do. We cannot do anything until we have those implants in place and snap the dentures in," office manager Kevin Byington told WDAF. "Without those, it's our inventory. It's what we need to get things started."
