GRANITE FALLS, N.C. -- The reward is now $6,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the murder of a pawn shop clerk.

Tony Lee Myers was killed three days after Christmas inside the Granite Gun and Pawn in Granite Falls. Police believe his killer stole several guns.

On Wednesday, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives offered a $5,000 reward. Earlier this week, Caldwell County CrimeStoppers announced a $1,000 reward.

Officers released a sketch of a man witnesses saw inside the business around the time of the crime. He's described as a white man with a slim build, short in height and has dark-colored hair. The man may have a speech impediment.

Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 828-758-8300.
