OWASSO, Oklahoma -

Priceless memories and $25,000 worth of items were stolen from a woman, and it was caught on video.

Barbara Woodard’s family said they had packed everything she owned into a trailer to move her to Owasso when the thief took it all.

Surveillance footage at a storage facility outside Owasso shows a white Ford truck pull up to Trails End Mini Storage last Wednesday. It shows a person open the gate and drive in, then, minutes later, leave with Woodard’s memories in tow.

"I haven't had a bite to eat since then. I mean, it's just all the things that I had…my kids, you know all of their childhood memories that I kept - everything," she said.

Woodard’s daughter, Michele Hyer, said that her family had recently moved her mom up from Texas. They even put the storage trailer in a secure place with a boot on it as a safeguard.

"We had a tape recording old, old, tape recorder that my sister and I talked on when we were children. It was the ones that just ran with like a fishing line, that's how old the tape recorder was. I mean, you just can’t replace stuff like that," Woodard said.

She said the thief pulled the wheel off the trailer and took off.

Hyer said her mom was also holding onto priceless items from her sister who died last year.

"My sister’s stuff that my mom was holding onto. That makes me sad,” she said. "She was only 39, so it's just hard. But it's okay, so, it’s something that we weren't expecting."

Hyer said although she and her family are devastated, she forgives the suspect and hopes to be reunited with memories.

"Everything that you have in your house my mom had and it was in that trailer, and now she has nothing," she said.

The family said they are offering a $500 reward.

The Rogers County Sheriff's Office said the thief was driving a white Ford F-250 quad cab, short bed between the years of 2008-2010.
