Surveillance cameras stolen, police search for answers
OKLAHOMA CITY –Investigators are trying to find a man who was caught on camera outside a business during a burglary last Saturday
Police say a man and two women are suspected of breaking into Christian H. Pilgrim’s dentist office.
Pilgrim said, “If you saw the picture of these people, these people are not your honor students.”
Authorities say the man was seen taking out the security camera and is believed to have broken into the building and taken two expensive televisions.
“In the video you can actually see this man approach the security camera clutching a hammer,” Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, with the Oklahoma City Police Department, said. “He removes the camera. Fortunately, we were still able to remove the images.”
Pilgrim says he hopes the images will lead officers to the people responsible for the crime.
He said, “[Someone will] recognize the guy or the vehicle because it is so obvious.”
Officers said the man was driving a tan or gold Chrysler with shiny black rims.
As for Pilgrim, he says they will be installing extra security around his building.
He said, “If they would just put that much effort into finding a job, they’d be a lot more successful.”
Experts say it will cost around $3,000 to repair and replace everything the thieves took or damaged.
