Vandalism Victim Says He Caught The Suspects On Camera

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

A metro veteran woke up to two slashed tires. His security cameras clearly show three suspects on his property.

Darryl Lynch lives in the 3100 block of SW 99 Street in Oklahoma City.

He shared his surveillance video with News 9 showing the suspects jumping over his fence.

One of them was carrying a bat and trying to get into the home.

Lynch checked his cameras Monday morning because someone vandalized his car overnight between 9 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday.

“Always suspicious, you know, military, so when I came out I saw my car leaning and so I looked up coming I'm like, ‘OK, here we go,’ and this is what I found,” Lynch told News 9.

Lynch was just about to get in his car and head to work at the VA Medical Center when he realized he had two flat tires.

Someone had slashed the tires.

The Army veteran served for 22 years and said now he does not even feel safe in his own home.

“You defend your country on a regular basis, but for you to have to defend your home is unnecessary, so I'm at a point now where I have to have my concealed weapon on me at all times,” Lynch said.

This is the latest in a long string of vandalism and Lynch thinks it's all related.

He said a couple of weeks ago, someone egged his house.

Last April, someone busted out his back windshield, and in October 2014, someone broke into his home and stole several electronics.

“We finally got them on video and I hope the public will let us know who these individuals are so I can press charges,” Lynch explained.

He said he hopes to identify them before things escalate.

“I was shocked, due to the fact that they are so young and for them to even have the instinct of being that criminal, it's mind boggling,” Lynch added.

Call Oklahoma City Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300 if you recognize the people in the surveillance video.
