Thief Uses Crowbar To Open Belle Isle Walmart Cash Register

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police are on the lookout for a brazen thief, caught on camera prying open a cash register at the Belle Isle Walmart, located in northwest Oklahoma City.

The suspect is seen entering through the garden section of the store before making his way to automotive, where he uses one of the store’s own crowbars to pry open the cash register.

“A man walked into Walmart and he brought no tools with him,” said Msgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department. “However, he did walk back to the automotive department, which was unmanned at the time.”

The video captured the suspect casually strolling through the automotive department around 8:30 p.m. on July 8. He looked around several times to see if anyone noticed him.  

“He walked over to a shelf and simply took a crowbar or a pry bar off the shelf,” said Knight. “He went to the cash register, pried the door open on the cash register.”

In less than 30 seconds, the suspect opened the cash register, took the cash and walked off. Police said this is a unique burglary case.

“Typically with a burglary, you don’t see a business that is open and they walk in to burglarize something,” said Knight.              

There were no witnesses expect the store’s cameras. The video captured him walking into the store and leaving with a handful of stolen cash.

“I don’t know that he realized there were so many cameras that captured images of him,” said Knight. “Somebody out there will recognize him.”   

If you have information about this crime contact the police department’s Crime Stoppers tip line at (405) 235-7300.
