Burglars Take Extreme Measures To Break Into Metro RV Park Office
OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City Police are looking for a couple of burglars. A man and woman were caught on camera breaking into Abe’s RV Park near Interstate 35 and Northeast 122nd.
The duo went to extreme lengths to steal money and keys.
The RV park owner, Bob Simon, was surprised at the break-in. He said this is only the second time he has had criminal activity at his business in 16 years.
"We’ve had very few issues," said Bob Simon, Abe’s RV Park owner.
Simon said he knows all his guests by name.
“They’re repeats,” said Simon. “They come every year or when they’re working in town or they’re here to see family.”
He said two unfamiliar faces visited during the early morning hours of Labor Day. The cameras on the front of the office caught the duo walking to the building and around to the back.
A responding officer wrote in the report the suspects broke a lock on a utility room and pried their way inside the building. The wall between the utility room and the laundry room did not stop the female suspect.
“Within a minute or so her head pops through,” said Officer Megan Morgan, Oklahoma City Police Department. “She eventually makes entry into the laundry room area through a hole she cuts into the wall.”
The woman then made her way to the office. Police believe the man was waiting outside as the woman pilfered drawers. She stole change collected from the washing machines and sets of keys.
You cannot see her face in the video, but she revealed something else that could give away her identity.
“The best glimpse of the tattoos is a shot where she is actually bending over getting into a drawer and you can see she’s got a large star tattoo on the left side of her lower back,” said Morgan. “She’s also got some type of tattoo on her left arm. It covers most of her upper arm.”
Police and the business owner think someone will recognize the burglars.
“If they’re going to go through the trouble of breaking in here,” said Simon. “They’re going to try and break in somewhere else.”
The owner said their security video shows the suspects walking to his business from a nearby hotel.
