Authorities in Maryland are searching for a man they say burglarized 47 storage units in about an hour.

Surveillance video shows the man entered the facility in Kensington on Dec. 2 at about 9:40 p.m., The Washington Post reported, citing Montgomery County police. He got into the facility by closely following behind a car that had access to a security gate, according to a police statement issued Friday.

The man is seen leaving the facility in a white sedan at about 10:52 p.m. During his time in the facility, the man broke the locks to 47 storage units, stole property from them and rummaged through two cars, police said. Police didn't immediately say how much the stolen property was worth.

Police said a $10,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the case.

Correction (Dec. 23, 2019, 11:28 a.m. ET): This Associated Press story previously said the suspect was wanted for robbery. He is wanted for burglary.
