OKLAHOMA CITY - A man was caught on camera allegedly stealing hard-earned paychecks from a metro business.

The next day checks, with the account information on them, were cashed at a Walmart by two other people.

The owner of Stevens Trucking said on three different occasions someone slipped through a usually locked gate and stole several paychecks from a building that is about half a mile down the road.

"Feel like somebody kicked me in the gut, because it feels like you've been violated," Stevens said. "Someone's come on to your property and taking something that doesn't belong to them."

Stevens said the account and routing numbers were used to make fake checks that were cashed at a Walmart on 44th and Western in Oklahoma City.

"The banks and Walmart are out about $7,000 dollars," Stevens said.

In video taken above a register, you see a blonde woman and a man wearing a hat and green shirt.

Police want to talk to them in connection with the case.

A case that Stevens hopes will soon be closed.

"We're like everybody," Stevens said. "We have opportunities for people to work, and there are people out taking away from them."

Mostly, this situation has been a big headache for those at Stevens Trucking.

"We've had to change, you know, stop and cancel those accounts and open new accounts," Stevens said. "Print new checks, and we've had to change the way we work. It's just a pain."

Now, he is doing things differently by locking up hard earned money and warning his employees in a monthly newsletter.

The owner believes one of the suspects may drive a silver four door Chevy or GMC truck.

He does not recognize anyone in the videos but, if you do, call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.

Callers can remain anonymous and a cash reward is available.

Stevens said, if the suspects are caught, he will match the reward Crime Stoppers offers.
