OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Two Oklahoma City police officers are among those who have been victimized during the past two weeks by what authorities say is a growing number of burglaries.

The first such burglarly came on April 11, when officer Jennifer Aleman was having dinner at a restaurant. Aleman says she had locked the door to her truck and didn't see any sign of forced entry, but her purse, badge and gun had been taken.

The burglars later were caught, with what police say were 80 vehicle keys, 12 remote-vehicle-entry key fobs and a key ring with locksmith tools.

Last week, an undercover Oklahoma City officer went to check on his vehicle after hering a loud bang.

He discovered a window had been broken out, and a backpack was missing that contained his 9 mm Glock, handcuffs, badge, police access card, undercover driver's license, city-issued BlackBerry phone, keys to a special-projects gate and stereo equipment.
