TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police need help finding two men caught on camera breaking into the PGA Championship office at Southern Hills Country Club.

The director of the PGA Championship Bryan Karns says his staff found out about the break-in early Thursday morning when they pulled up to the office and noticed one of the windows was broken. Once the two thieves broke into the PGA Championship office early Thursday morning they got to work stealing pretty much anything they could carry.

“Once we got into the office, there was a busted-out window that had been used to gain access into our offices.” “We noticed obviously some things were missing, some things had been disturbed, so pretty quickly knew what had taken place," Karns said.

Karns says luckily there wasn't much for them to take.

"I think they just you know slipped in and thought that maybe there was something in there,” he said.

The suspects carried two TVs and a few computers out right past security cameras inside. They also stole things like clothing and PGA memorabilia making it out with more than $2,000 worth of stolen items, but Karns is staying positive.

“There wasn’t anything significant that was damaged or stolen. Just some minor things. Fortunately, just material things that can be replaced,” he said.

He says luckily his team keeps some of their equipment at home so, they were able to get back to work almost immediately.

“24-hours later we were back to business,” he said.

The Tulsa Police Department asks anyone who recognizes the men or knows something about the burglary to call crime stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
