A businessman from the Black Country says he was nearly left bankrupt after thieves stole equipment worth more than £20,000 from his party hire business.
Chris Winters runs Jumpin'Jacks, which rents bouncy castles and inflatable party games from his base in Rowley Regis.
In March, a group of five men stole thousands of pounds worth of inflating equipment, bouncy castles and a bucking bronco machine.
Over three and a half hours they came back twice ransacking the lock up at the back of his fancy dress shop on Oldbury Road.
Chris said he felt devastated by the burglary.
In total Mr Winters lost equipment worth £22,000 in the raid, and could only claim back £8,000 because he was underinsured.
He says it's thanks to other businesses and friends that he was able to stay afloat during the summer.
Police arrested two people at the time, but they were released without charge due to a lack of evidence.
Sergeant Leighton Shingles from Sandwell Investigation Team said:
Mr Winter's has now set up a Facebook page , showing CCTV images from the night, and is offering a £500 reward for information.
He's hoping someone will come forward with the information he needs to bring those responsible to justice.
