Two suspects are still at large after an attempted burglary at a metro business.

It happened at Oklahoma Gold Buyers on South Penn, and it was bizarre.

Things actually seemed normal at first when a man and woman came in to cash in on some silver. But it wasn't long before the man was crawling up in the ceiling, and that's when things got messy.

Take a good look at this surveillance video. This is the couple police are looking for. Sam Limbocker was the employee helping them at Oklahoma Gold Buyers on 91st St. and S. Penn.

"They brought in a bunch of spoons, sterling silver spoons," Limbocker says. "They were bent and all torn up. That's not an usual item for someone to bring into the store."

What was unusual was how the man was acting.

"He was obviously high. She was calm, relaxed. He was pacing back and forth," Limbocker said.

The man asked if he could use their restroom. He was gone for a while. Then Limbocker heard a loud noise and went to the safe room to check out what was going on.

"About the time I opened the door, he was falling through the ceiling tiles," Limbocker says."Truthfully, my mind was just racing. My only thought was to call 911."

The man went back up through the ceiling, came out through the restroom, and he was a mess.

"He had actually used the restroom on himself. I think we literally scared him so badly that he lost control of his bowels," Limbocker said.

The man took off. The woman grabbed her spoons and left too. They weren't able to get away with anything, but they left a lot of something nobody wants to clean up.

"It was in the ceiling, on the walls, on the floor," Limbocker says. "You name it, it was there."

The store has changed its restroom policy - no public restroom there anymore.

If you know who that couple is in the video, call Oklahoma City Police. We're told the couple took off in a blue SUV.

They're both described to be 25-30 years of age, 5-feet-7-inches tall, 150 lbs.
