Oklahoma City police looking for several suspects who attempted to rob local ice house

OKLAHOMA CITY - Police are looking for several people who broke into an ice house using a concrete saw.

It happened on February 9 at the Sparkle Ice House near S.E. 29th and I-35 Service Road.

"It's very depressing to put up with s*** like that all the time," Merle, who works at Sparkle Ice House, told News 4.

Fortunately, surveillance cameras caught the suspects in action.

"This was a very determined set of burglars. They actually took a concrete saw and were sawing through the hinges of the door before finally prying it open and making entry," said MSgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

In the surveillance video, you see the suspects pull up to the ice house in a truck that police believe is stolen.

According to the police report, they attempted to break in multiple times before getting inside. They cut one of the locks that protects the cash machine loose and then left before cutting the second lock, leaving the scene without a dime.

Police believe they were possibly spooked by something, which is why they left the scene.

"They were at this scene for a very long time. Usually, burglars want to get there, get in, get out. But, in this case, they took the time to actually saw the hings off the door," Knight said.

Now, police are hoping someone recognizes the suspects so officers can track them down.

"People trying to make an honest living, and things just go to hell," Merle said.

So far, no arrests have been made.
