OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police are seeking the public's help in locating suspects they said left a video of them committing a crime behind at another crime scene.

Now police want you to see it in the hopes that it will lead to an arrest. It's now getting a lot of replay value by officers investigating this apparent vandalism and burglary.

Authorities have already been looking into at least five similar crimes in the same area. They believe that the suspect visible in the video is linked to all of them.

"Obviously we're going to take these images as we're doing now and showing them to the public to try to determine who this person is," Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Paco Balderrama said.

Authorities describe the suspect as a 15-year-old black male, 5"7' and about 170 pounds.

If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call police. The number for Crime Stoppers is 235-7300. Your tip could earn a $1,000 reward.
