Police looking for man with prosthetic leg who broke into metro apartment complex

DEL CITY, Okla. - Police are looking for a man they said broke into a metro apartment complex.

It happened at Tinker Del Apartments. After a security alarm went off, the property manager found a man in the leasing office.

"A tall white male wearing a ball cap. It appears that the suspect had a left prosthetic leg," said Lt. Brad Rule with Del City Police.

The suspect took off on foot and fled the scene in a black Toyota 4 Runner that appeared to have three chrome rims and a spare wheel. He’s described as a white male in his 30s or 40s.

Police said he broke in through the laundry room using some sort of “tool.”

Management says he bought a laundry card to trick security into letting him into the laundry facility.

Anyone with information is urged to call police.
