OKLAHOMA CITY - A group of five people is wanted for questioning in connection to a theft that happened at an Oklahoma City motel.

According to police, on Thursday, August 11, officers responded to the report of a larceny at Budget Inn, located at 4017 N.W. 39th Street.

The victim works at the motel. He said a group of five, including four females and one male, came into the motel and asked an employee to show them a room. However, the employee didn’t realize that one person from the group had sneaked into the bathroom in the motel office to wait for them to leave.

When the employee left with the group to show them the room, that suspect reportedly came out of the bathroom and can be seen on surveillance video hopping over the front desk. That suspect then entered the apartment behind the office, where the victim lives, and stole cash deposits and jewelry.

The suspect stole more than $10,000 in cash, and about $25,000 worth of jewelry, according to police.

The group of five then left the scene in two vehicles, described as a white Jeep and a silver van with a California tag.

Police believe the same group may be connected to two other cases, one at an El Reno business and the other one at a business at 7800 S. May.

On Tuesday, August 16, police released several surveillance photos of the group. If you recognize any of them or have any information, call Crime Stoppers at (405)-235-7300, or submit a tip online.
