Neighborhood using social media to help catch burglars

OKLAHOMA CITY – A very patient and persistent thief is prowling metro neighborhoods.

Officials say the thief is staking out neighborhoods and striking while residents are away at work or school.

One neighborhood has been hit repeatedly.

The Spring Hill Homeowners Association is now fighting back by using eyes, ears, and social media.

They have launched a web page and a Facebook page notifying all homeowners of anything unusual or suspicious.  They have adopted the motto “see something, say something.”

Residents say they try to communicate as widely as they can.

They hope this system will help police capture the unwelcome house guest.
