Serial cell phone store burglary suspect on loose
OKLAHOMA CITY – An armed robber is on the run. The suspect is targeting cell phone stores. Oklahoma City police say the robber presents himself in the same manner by walking into businesses, lifts up his shirt to show store employees a gun and demands money.
Surveillance video captured who police believe to be the same suspect in two different robberies.
“He’s been hitting several businesses. They’re all cellular stores. It’s basically the scenario in every case. He walks in makes a little bit of conversation then produces a gun in his waistband demanding cash from the business,” Oklahoma Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.
At least six businesses have been hit.
Rosaura Sierra was working inside one of the businesses when it was hit.
“He comes in asking us about our plans,” she said. “He lifted up his shirt and showed me the gun he had in his shirt and said ‘Give me all your money. Hurry, Hurry, Hurry. Give me everything you have in there. After that he told me to lay down on the floor for ten minutes and not get up or he was going to get me.”
Sierra waited until the man left and called authorities.
“I just did what he said,” she said. “I didn’t want to get hurt or anything.”
The suspect is described as a white male in his 40’s. Sierra says he had facial hair and was wearing reading glasses. If you have any information contact police.
