Concerns are being raised in one Oklahoma City neighborhood following a series of car break-ins. 

A homeowner caught as many as three different suspects on camera breaking into vehicles in the 3000 block of Tenkiller Drive.

Christie Richmond had no idea what happened overnight, until a friend noticed her wallet was missing and looked at camera footage.

“What are their motives? Are they casing the place for something bigger than that?” said Richmond. “It just made me feel better about the fact that that my husband is proactive enough to have cameras and to be aware of what is going on.”

Another victim told police the suspects stole an XM radio and tools.

Some victims like Debra Stevenson had nothing taken at all, just a door left open.

“Anytime you have someone that's brave enough to come into your driveway and try to get into your vehicle, their next step is going to try to get into your house,” said Stevenson.

With a neighborhood on high alert, residents ask these alleged thieves to stop and reconsider.

“I would just ask him to consider not just his needs but consider the fact that he doesn't know the circumstances of the people who own these cars,” said Richardson.

If you have any information or recognize the suspects, call Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300 or leave a tip online at www.okccrimetips.com
