TULSA, OK -- Police continue to look for suspects in a smash and grab burglary overnight that resulted in the theft of a big screen TV.

Police officers responded to an alarm at the Desi Wok restaurant at 39th and Hudson at 2:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Officers found the front glass door smashed and a 42 inch flat screen TV taken off a wall.

Police say it doesn't appear anything else was taken.

Meanwhile, it appears a burglary alarm at another business scared a would-be thief off overnight.

Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies responded to an alarm at the Shell station at Pine and Yale at about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Deputies say it appears the thief crawled through a service window, but as soon as the thief was inside the store, an alarm went off, causing the thief to flee.
