Surveillance video, homeowner captures would-be thief in the act

OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for a would-be burglar after a man could be seen kicking in a door to a home in southwest Oklahoma City.

Authorities were called to the 2500 block of S.W. 50th St. after a homeowner caught a suspected burglar red-handed.

Officers learned that the man heard some commotion at the front door around 8:30 a.m. on Friday.

The man walked into the living room to find a Hispanic man unplugging his electronics.

When the suspect saw the homeowner, he allegedly said, “Sorry” before running from the home.

The victim told police the suspect got into a blue 1990s model four-door Honda.

The crime was also caught on the home’s surveillance system.

A Hispanic man with a buzz haircut can be seen kicking in the front door and immediately unplugging some of the electronics.

Moments later, he turns his head and runs from the home.

The suspect was wearing a black hoodie, blue shorts with a white stripe on them and orange shoes.

If you have any information on the crime, or the man seen in the surveillance video, call Oklahoma City police.
