OKC Woman Pleads For Thief To Return Phone With Pregnancy Photos

OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma City woman is begging a burglar to have a heart and return her cell phone that had all of her pregnancy pictures on it.

"I've been so angry and upset I had to go pray yesterday at church," Alva Patterson said.

Patterson went to the OnCue gas station at N.W. 23rd and Santa Fe to get cash out of the ATM last Friday. She said she had a contraction and put her phone down.

"Grabbed my stomach of course and once it was over, I finished the transaction and I forgot that I left the phone on top of the ATM," Patterson explained.

When she walked back over to get it, the phone was gone.

"My phone is my life, everything is in there. I mean you have access to my whole world from just my phone," Patterson said.

Patterson is nine months pregnant with her first child and had her ultrasound pictures on her phone. She can replace those, but not the pictures she took each week of her growing belly.

"All of the pictures that I've taken to capture the progression of my pregnancy are on there. Those are irreplaceable, I can't get those back," Patterson said.

The phone is a white Galaxy Samsung S4. It was in a pink Otterbox protective case.

Oklahoma City Police were not surprised someone snatched the phone because it is such an easy item to trade for cash.

"It is an item of value that will be stolen if you leave it out in the open long enough," explained Msgt. Gary Knight with OCPD.

According to the police report, the suspect is a black male about 5'10" and weighing 180 pounds. He was wearing a red hat, grey sweatshirt and jeans.

The suspect hopped into the driver's seat of a white BMW SUV and took off.

"If you drive a BMW you would think you have enough money to buy a phone - all the phones you want actually," Patterson chuckled.

Patterson said she will drop the grand larceny charges if she gets her phone back. You are urged to call crime stoppers with information at (405)-235-7300.
