OKLAHOMA CITY -

There's been a lot of clean up at the Roadrunner RV Park but the fencing is still down, which is a problem because people have been walking up and taking things that don't belong to them.

“We had another couple that lived here eight years. In fact, he told me when he moved in he told me when he moved in he said, ‘We will be here until they take us away',” said Owner Ray Doonkeen.

But not even a tornado can keep these folks from moving back, it is home, even if it is bulldozed mess right now. But, some people believe because the homes of others are now in piles, it's a free for all.

“Every night they were coming in every night. We had security, and they were still getting back there in the back,” said Doonkeen.

The owner said a couple of men were arrested, but the most recent suspected looter is a woman named Ciara Ginter.

“What it is is they're just people who live around here I guess, because all of our fencing is down. So, they were coming in from all different directions, and they come in walking,” continued Doonkeen.

There is security at the RV Park but at the time it was pitch black, the power wasn't back up and running yet.

“They stole a lot of batteries, tires, some TV's. One woman lost two TV's,” said Doonkeen.

They may have lost their homes too, but it's just temporary. Most people here aren't going anywhere, the owner says he and his family originally started out in the restaurant business and watched the construction of the RV Park. Now, they're putting it back together again.
