Moore Family Hopes Surveillance Video Will Help Catch Burglar
MOORE, Oklahoma - A metro family is still shaken up after their home was violently broken into in broad daylight. Now they're hoping a neighbor's surveillance video will help catch the suspect.
When Shawna Bostick and her 3-year-old daughter returned home after a quick trip to a home improvement store, she found her door busted wide open, her entire home ransacked. The stay at home mom thinks the burglar watched as they left before making the bold move and breaking in.
"He came straight back to my bedroom. We believe he took the pillow case off my husband's side of the bed next," said a still shaken Bostick.
Bostick says the burglar used that pillow case to stuff as many of her and her husband's things inside as he could.
"Knowing that he's in my house, taking my pillows off my bed and filling it with my jewelry, my wedding ring, my daughter's social security card," said Bostick. "He's in my home. He's in my safe haven and he's violating it."
Bostick's next door neighbor's surveillance camera captured video of the suspect getting out of a green, late model Chevrolet pickup.
"And you see the passenger get out. He's in the house for 12 minutes and then you see him come back out with my pillow cases loaded with my belongings," said Bostick.
Bostick returned home and found closets destroyed, drawers where she keeps her bills ransacked. In all she says more than $15,000 of stuff was stolen.
"They know where we are. They know everything about us. They know where my husband is employed. They know our social security numbers. They know everything," said Bostick.
She and her neighbors hope police are able to catch the suspect as quickly as possible.
"I just don't want this to happen to anybody else," said Bostick. "This is not right."
Bostick says she and her husband are now in the process of getting an alarm and surveillance system installed. If you recognize the suspect or the Chevrolet pickup, call police.
That's the latest in a string of burglaries News 9 has told you about lately. After we showed a thief at a southwest Oklahoma City home Monday night, a Blanchard detective contacted News 9, saying he thinks the same people are responsible for several crimes there.
The surveillance video shows a woman using stolen credit cards at Wal-Mart stores in Newcastle and Moore. Police say the credit cards were stolen in a series of car break-ins on March 1.
The woman was also driving a black pickup, which appears to be the same one we showed in Monday's story. Police have not connected the most recent Moore home burglary to the string of break-ins in Oklahoma City, and Blanchard.
