WACO, Texas — The McLennan County Game Warden is searching for a deer poacher.

There's a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The suspect's vehicle is caught on camera.

The game warden tells 25 News, the person driving a newer silver Ford F-150 shot and killed two white-tailed deer, a doe and a buck.

The shooter left the deer to die at the entrance to the Lake Waco Marina on Over Flow Road back on October 12th.

After shooting the deer, the same suspect is believed to have burglarized The Minnow restaurant which is also on the lake.

Waco Police are investigating the burglary.

If you recognize the truck or know anything that could help investigators, call the McLennan County Game Warden at 1-800-792-GAME (4263).
