OKLAHOMA CITY - It is an expensive crime. An $80,000 RV was stolen and thousands of dollars in damages were left behind.

The crime happened Sunday morning just after sunrise.

Now the business is hoping surveillance footage can help track down the missing RV and a suspect.

“It's not something they could just stash in their garage. They've got to have a good spot to hide something that big,” Robert Floyd, with Floyd’s RV, said.

The RV is 37-feet long, a Newmar RV worth about $80,000.

Floyd’s RV sent us the surveillance footage from the day the RV was taken. In the video, the stolen motor home is seen driving around the corner. It then pulls up to a gate where it stops.

“I guess they thought when they drove up from the inside it would open automatically and it didn't,” Floyd said.

The driver then pushes through the gate, bending it around the motor and knocking a hubcap off the RV.

Another camera then shows the driver make their way to the next gate, pushing through that as well.

But that was not the only crime committed.

“They tried to break into another motor home but were not able to get it started,” Floyd said.

That RV was also damaged. The door lock and ignition were busted, the hood was pried open.

I have a sneaking suspicion they knew what they were doing, they knew what they were looking for,” Floyd said.

Robert Floyd believes the suspect likely spent quite a bit of time on the lot, even knowing to unplug the RV before driving off

“It looks like they went through the owner's manual and searched through everything” he said.

He's now hoping someone will spot the missing RV.

“If it's got a long scratch down the left side and a hubcap is missing odds are that's it,” Floyd said.

If you have any information which could help in this investigation you're asked to call the McClain County Sheriff's Office.
