OKLAHOMA CITY – Burglars hit a local RV dealership, stealing tires and breaking into the governor’s campaign motor home.

Police say the thieves cut through a fence and made their way onto the Leisure Time RV lot around 3 a.m. on Thursday.

The alleged burglars vandalized about five fold-down trailers on the lot, stealing 21 tires.

Afterward, they moved onto Gov. Mary Fallin’s campaign RV, which was also parked in the lot.

Authorities say they tore out the dashboard and took off with a television.

The entire crime spree lasted about an hour and a half.

Officials say the burglars won’t get much for the stolen items.

However, the damage they left behind will cost the business much more than the tires.

“It doesn’t make any sense. It’s probably the least expensive product that we have on the lot, but I suspect some of those are totaled with what they did to them,” said Ron Walker, the business’ owner.

He added, “The jacks that hold them up collapsed. I’m afraid some of the frames were bent and yeah, it’s just a mess over there.”

Walker estimates about $15,00 0 to $20,000 in damage was done.
