Suspects targeted a firefighter's home near Northwest 192nd and May Avenue in Oklahoma City last week.
Several firearms, electronics and six Deer Creek Fire Protection District t-shirts were stolen.
“They skipped over all the rest of the laundry that was folded on the bed and just slid that stack right into their bag,” said Chief Cory Beagles about what happened to the victim.
Chief Beagles wants the public to know their firefighters do not respond directly to any non-medical scenes.
And if you see someone wearing the t-shirt pictured looking around a home, make sure they also have a few other things with them.
“They’re either going to have a department vehicle, which will be a billboard for Deer Creek,” he explained. “Or they’ll have a portable radio or other fire gear. If they don’t have those things, consider it to be suspicious and call 911 or the police department and let them know.”
By spreading the word about the shirts, Chief Beagles hopes to keep anyone else from becoming a victim.
“If we can take that tool away from them, it’s better for the public and it’s better for us,” said Chief Beagles.
No arrests have been made in the burglary case. Call OKC Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300 if you have any information.
