CHICKASHA, Okla. - A retirement and assisted living facility in Chickasha was broken into and vandalized.

The crime was all caught on surveillance video.

Authorities are now searching for a man and a woman they believe to be responsible.

"It's unknown if this is a situation where someone was trying to entertain themselves with malicious intent or if they were actually trying to take something of value," said Interim Chief of Police Shanon McClain.

Police said the crimes took place at 2:00 a.m. at Nowata Gardens on Thursday.

The facility was getting ready for a Halloween party, storing a bunch of pumpkins under a car port on property.

"They damaged the pumpkins, about 20 of them, cut them up, then entered the facility through some doors," said McClain.

Then somehow, the duo forced their way inside the building.

Police said a mystery man, caught on camera was carrying a black pistol.

"They went into the maintenance closet and grabbed a can of brown and can of white paint. They exited the facility and threw the paint on several vehicles, damaging the paint on those vehicles and slashing some tires," said McClain.

A total of eight cars have damage.

Police said the man and the woman caught on tape committing these crimes will face burglary and vandalism charges.

"There's no reason for what they did," said McClain.
