The Search Is On For Two OKC Home Invasion Suspects
OKLAHOMA CITY - Authorities said the search is on for two home invasion suspects wanted for taking several items, including a gun, from a metro home. And the suspect's crime was all caught on camera.
Police have been searching for the two suspects for nearly a month and a half. Friday, the homeowner even made a plea for the suspects to be caught.
"I became very anxious, I was anxiety-ridden and scared and nervous and shaking," said the home burglary victim.
Those are the emotions of a homeowner who didn't want to be identified because not even the signs in her yard or the chains on her fence could rest her nerves.
"I'm terrified, honestly. I'm terrified every day I come home, looking to see if they've come back. I'm terrified," said the homeowner.
Authorities said they are looking for what appears to be one man and one woman, who were caught on home surveillance cameras as they rummaged through the homeowner's belongings.
The footage was saved after the homeowner found open drawers and a broken back door at her home, which sits at the end of the 4100 block of Cunningham Drive in Oklahoma City.
The homeowner told News 9 the suspects got away with two lawn mowers, a one-ounce bar of silver and an 1800's-era revolver.
"My father gave that to me about eight years ago and it's just been passed down to him from his father and so on,” she said.
She planned to pass it down to her son because it originated with her distant relative, the famed Oklahoma lawman, Bill Tilghman.
But she said even the value of the revolver wasn't worth as much as her security.
"I hope they catch the people responsible because I worked really hard for those things," said the homeowner.
The homeowner said this was the second break-in in just months, and she said she fears it could be someone on her own street because both have occurred in the afternoon while she was at work.
