TULSA, OK -- A man who broke into a Tulsa business, had his entire crime caught on tape and he didn't realize it until it was too late.

The man went inside Precise Machining at 12716 East Pine Street on October 26th around 7:30 p.m.

"He used a code to get into the business. He is not an employee of the business," said TPD Officer Leland Ashley.

Police believe the man worked for a janitorial company and got the code that way. They say they suspect this is not the first time this man has helped himself to items from this company.

"We believe he was also responsible for another burglary at this business in August," said Officer Ashley.

Ironically, it wasn't until the man had spent some time in front of the cameras that he realized he was on tape. He tried to cover the lens at that time, but, of course, it was already too late.
