Tulsa Woman Shaken Up After Break In
TULSA, Oklahoma -
A Tulsa woman said her apartment was broken into while she slept.
Amy Hauger said although her apartment has been repaired, she's scared this could happen again.
"Any little noise whether it's the cat eating or the dog downstairs its any little noise just kind of startles me". Hauger said.
Early Wednesday morning she was sound asleep when she heard a large crash.
"I thought it was either a tree, or I thought it was thunder, at first cause I heard trickling, it sounded like trickling of water, but that ended up being the glass falling," Hauger said.
She said she walked downstairs, peaked around the corner and noticed glass all over the floor. Someone had thrown a cinderblock through her sliding glass door and had broken into her home. She went upstairs and called police.
She said, "they brought K-9 units, they brought at least five or more people checking out to see what was going on".
Police said several schools were locked down while they looked for who did it. Hauger said computer monitors, DJ equipment, her house keys and even medical supplies were taken.
Police found them just feet from her apartment.
Hauger said they "ended up just dumping everything on the back part of my lot, and luckily everything was found."
Since then she said, she's taken preventative measures to keep this from happening again and says she's learned a valuable lesson.
"You definitely need to learn about how to keep your home safe, I mean like one of the policemen said your home is your castle.” She said.
