In that string of burglaries in Kingfisher, police have identified two of three suspects accused in the bold, daytime crime spree. All three are caught on camera and police are trying to track them down.

Kingfisher police say the three hit the parking lots of four business, all in broad daylight. Within a couple of hours, the suspects were at an El Reno Wal-Mart trying to cash in on their stolen goods. Police say the suspects, caught on surveillance video at the Wal-Mart, knew exactly what they were doing.

"Hit four places, three inside city limits, and one out in the county, out north of town," said Sgt. Dustin Brodrick

Just after noon Tuesday, a customer at El Charro's Mexican restaurant walked out to a broken window and a missing wallet.

"It was a rush, the rush hour," said restaurant owner, Catalina Ortega. "It was real busy here and those people, they were regular customers."

Police believe the thieves are scouting parking lots in the area looking for easy grabs, and police say they don't seem to be worried about getting caught.

"It's kind of concerning," said Ortega. "This community is real safe and there are real nice people here."

The three then head to Wal-Mart after their burglary heist. One guy paces around outside as the female suspect is dropped off in a red Ford Escape, then goes in to try and load money onto gift cards. She successfully walks away with about $250.

"They've done this enough to know that they need to go and get what they can get off the cards before they get canceled," said Brodrick.

"Today it was this lady, tomorrow, maybe it be myself. You never know," said Ortega.

Kingfisher police don't believe the suspects are from the area. Brodrick says the two suspects they've identified have addresses all across the state.
