Wednesday night, a tornado traveled down the 46th Street corridor in north Tulsa and all the way to Rogers County.

While many victims are spending this week cleaning up, law enforcement is busing keeping a look out for looters and contractors taking advantage of storm victims.

One business owner, Mike Walker, said looters took furniture from his store right after the tornado touched down.

"It was like a sofa love here, setting right here. We had one right there, one right there and one over there. They just came through, cleaned out this little area," he said.

Walker said the tornado blew out his front door; police confirm looters hit his store.

"It's a minor setback because, the air conditioner got blown out, the lights and everything was out, but you know we gotta keep going," he said.

Business is back to normal for Walker, but Tulsa Police Officers like Tim O’Keefe aren't letting their guard down.

"We do have more patrols up there right now and if anybody has a problem up there we want them to call 911, immediately. If someone's breaking into a house, somebody looks suspicious in the neighborhood please call us, we'll come out there and talk with them and find out what’s going on with it," O’Keefe said.

Tulsa police are also looking into several burglary reports the night of the storm.
