Police are looking for the person who broke into a Fastenal store near 11th and Peoria -- and police say it's the second time in a week it's been burglarized, the third time in a year.

Police say someone forced their way into the store around 2 a.m. Monday, October 17, 2016. The alarms went off and when officers arrived, there was no one inside.

A K-9 dog was called in to search the business, and a store representative was called in to see if anything was stolen. Employees later told us power tools were removed from a display wall.

"It appears he had somewhat knowledge of this business and the layout because he's not wasting any time as he gets in," said Officer Leland Ashley.

Police said someone pried the door open then grabbed the tools. They believe the same person robbed the store last Monday.

It is the fourth time a Fastenal store has been burglarized between Tulsa and Sand Springs this month. Officers say there's no suspect information at this point.
