Police investigating rash of burglaries in S.W. Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY - Police are investigating a rash of burglaries in southwest Oklahoma City.

Businesses like Cricket Wireless, Metro PCS and a health and wellness store were targeted.

Police are still searching for two possible suspects.

Inside Lacasita Health Center, Chuck Catty is still vacuuming broken pieces of glass, caused by burglars who smashed their way into his store.

"When you have people breaking into your business and trying to rob what you're trying to gain, it makes you feel very frustrated," Catty said.

His business near S.W. 59th & Western, along with three Metro PCS stores and a Cricket Wireless store were broken into early Tuesday morning.

Luckily, the burglars didn't get away with anything at Chuck's store, but he's left with a bad feeling.

"The violation, that you are trying to do an honest thing, and you being violated upon and it really hits home," Catty said.

"There was footage from some of these stores that caught two suspects, possibly Hispanic, who broke into the business with a baseball bat," said Officer Megan Morgan, Oklahoma City Police Dept.

Investigators are trying to figure out if the burglaries are all connected, while business owners clean up the leftover mess.

Chuck said it's costing him $600 to replace a window.

A hefty cost that is making him second guess where he wants to work.

"It's distressing, because maybe it could drive us out of this community into a more secure neighborhood," Catty said.

He is holding onto hope police find out whoever is going after him and his neighbors.

"I pray that the police catch those people and teach them whatever lesson they need to learn," Catty said.
