CHOCTAW, Oklahoma -

Police in Choctaw hope newly released surveillance video will end a nearly seven month crime spree for a trio of crooks.

Since February, residents around town have reported break-ins.

Choctaw police believe these thieves are tied to more than a dozen burglaries since May. Surveillance video caught the trio in the act giving investigators a first look at their suspects.

It was about 3:30 a.m., when Don Kidd, who was enjoying a cup of coffee on the porch, noticed his metal rooster was smashed and mangled in his driveway.

“I turned around and looked back at my shop, the door is up and both my trucks are gone and all my tools. I mean everything,” Kidd said.

To Kidd, his shop now looks bare. Power tools that once filled tables and hung from the walls now gone, in addition to his two trucks that were later recovered.

“They loaded all my stuff in my two vehicles and drove them out,” he said.

The thieves swiped about $18,000 worth of tools and guns from Kidd's shop.

Choctaw investigators believe the two men and woman in the surveillance video are connected to Kidd's break-in and others around town.

“Almost all the same. They enter what would be considered a side door or an access door to the building. And they are so bold as to opening the garage doors to leave,” Choctaw police Sgt. Scott Cox said.

The thieves strike in the middle of the night hitting homes on the outskirts of town.

Kidd is now left slowly rebuilding his collection of tools needed for his handyman business.

“I'm still upset about this. You name it that i work with it's gone,” he said.

Police have only been able to recover Kidd's two stolen trucks.

They estimate anywhere between $5,000 to $20,000 worth of items were taken from each of the victims and are still missing.
