Police Search For Teens Caught On Camera Vandalizing Moore Business

Posted: Updated:
MOORE, Oklahoma -

Moore business owners are dealing with thousands of dollars in damage to their property. Late Friday night and into Saturday morning, two windows and six surveillance cameras were shot out.

The business owners shared the video with News 9 in hopes of catching those responsible.

Around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Okie Express Auto Wash Manager Jeff McCool said the motion-sensitive security system was triggered by what appeared to be two young boys with a BB gun.

“They were having just a good old time, is what it seemed like. No respect for other people's property,” McCool said about the teens in the video.

McCool said the high-definition cameras caught them from several different angles and then shot-by-shot those cameras were shattered. After that, it looked like something spooked them and they took off. But the bold behavior would return. After midnight, they moved back into frame.

“They shot the two office windows. They came the exact same way they came before, except this time instead of taking off, they came from the back side of our building and proceeded to eliminate four more cameras,” McCool told News 9.

He said a total of six cameras in all were shot out along with the two windows. But the cameras did the job before being broken, by catching crystal clear images of them pointing right at the lens.

“That's a dangerous situation all in all,” McCool said.

He said he hopes they are held accountable for their actions.

“School's out now, so they get a little bit for free roam time. The parents have got to keep a better eye on their kids. They got to be more active in their lives and know what they're doing. Honestly, kids that young should not have been out at 11:30, 12 o'clock at night anyway,” McCool added.

“I just pray that these kids … that we get them off the street and hopefully turn their lives around before they make an even more serious mistake.”

McCool said he filed a police report on Saturday morning with Moore police.

Moore police spokesperson Jeremy Lewis told News 9 Sunday afternoon more information about the case would be available on Monday.
