Business owner turns to social media to find alleged thief

TUTTLE, Okla. – An alleged thief was caught on camera, stealing a $1,000 generator out of an Allegiance Electric company car .

Luckily, a Good Samaritan snapped pictures of the alleged suspect in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Tuttle during the crime.

In the pictures, you can see the man taking the generator out of a work vehicle and putting it into his mini-van.

The woman who took the pictures says she saw the number on the work vehicle and called the business to let them know what happened.

Now, Ryan Hook, owner of Allegiance Energy, is sharing those pictures on social media.

He says he posted pictures of the alleged thief and asked, “Everyone please share this, help us find this fat turd.”

After just one day on the Internet, he says the alleged suspect saw the pictures and called him, begging him not to get the police involved if he brought the generator back.

However, the alleged suspect still hasn’t returned the generator.

Hook says if he doesn’t see it soon, he’s going to call the police.
