Suspect Caught On Camera Breaking Into Tulsa Home
TULSA, Oklahoma - A man was caught on camera breaking into a home near 11th and Peoria and got away with more than $1,000 in items.
Tulsa Police are looking for this man, but neighbors say burglaries in that area are not uncommon.
Surveillance video shows the man forcing his way through a bedroom door. The man rummages through the room, taking whatever, he can get his hands on.
Tracy Mallory and Emma Tennyson say he left with electronics, laptops, and DVD’s. They say several of their neighbors’ homes have also been broken into recently. The homeowners say they were at work when the break-in happened.
"Somebody invading our personal space. Like a desperate person seeking quick money that they don't have," said Tracy. "I don't expect our things to get back. I think that they are just things. Mostly I'm just dealing with feeling violated."
This midtown home is not the only place where a thief has gotten inside. Elizabeth Ford lives just down the street and she says three men recently broke into her home and took off with cash, and her beloved service dog, Oden.
"There's been a lot of break-ins on this streets other streets I'm planning on moving," said Ford.
Emma Tennyson says she's not concerned about losing their material things but she is concerned about the safety of the neighborhood.
"I just don't want anybody else to have to go through the same thing because I feel like we live pretty modestly and the people he's stealing from are people who are just trying to make it," said Emma.
If you recognize the man in the video, call Tulsa Police.
