NORMAN, Okla. – Police need your help tracking down suspects responsible for multiple car burglaries.

"I'm extremely frustrated, angry, you know, all those rolled in to one,” Steve Willingham told NewsChannel 4.

That’s how Willingham feels about thieves targeting his Norman neighborhood.

"I came out Saturday morning to get in my truck for something, and I was coming back by my wife's car and I noticed the driver side door wasn't shut all the way,” Willingham said.

He said he quickly noticed the glove box and center console were open.

"I saw a gentleman tried my door, came up to my wife's - it happened to be unlocked, got in, rummaged through hers, stole a couple things, pushed it shut, tried my daughter's car, and then walked around and tried my other car,” Willingham said.

Willingham said this is the third time this has happened to him specifically.

Police said, in many cases, the suspects are looking for unlocked vehicles.

That’s why many residents are making sure their doors are locked.

"I always have my cars locked in the three years I've been here. I do not have any problems,” said Mso Thabakash.

Now, Willingham has a message for whoever is responsible.

"You will get caught, and you will pay the price,” Willingham said.

Officials with the Norman Police Department said, at this time, they have no reason to believe all of the incidents are connected.

No arrests have been made.
