PITTSBURGH -- The search for a Pittsburgh man accused of shooting his security guard partner and stealing over $2 million will reach a national audience Friday when the case is featured on America's Most Wanted. 

Target 11 Investigator Rick Earle has learned the FBI is using all available resources to try and locate Ken Konias Jr..

Earle found out that police and the FBI raided a house in West Mifflin Sunday afternoon after they suspected Konias might be hiding inside.

According to witnesses, agents with weapons drawn moved into the house in broad daylight. The resident, who was a volunteer firefighter in the same department as Konias once was, gave authorities permission to search the house.

FBI spokesman Bill Crowley said the agents found nothing and apologized to the homeowner before leaving.

Police have also investigated possible sightings of Konias in Whitaker and East McKeesport with no luck of locating him.

“We're getting tips on a regular basis and we have very specific leads we are covering,” Crowley said. “These tips come in on a daily basis.”

There are plenty of billboards with Konias’ picture in the Pittsburgh area, as well as in New York near the Canadian border, officials said.

Authorities hope  "America's Most Wanted " will bring in more tips, or perhaps lead to Konias' arrest.

“It’s been extremely successful in the past and we’re hoping one more time will do the trick,” Crowley said.

The armored truck company is still offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
