Thieves were caught on surveillance camera ripping off tornado victims. Now, police hope the video will lead to an arrest.

The storage facility in Moore has been hit by a burglar twice in the last 10 days.

Some of the victims in the burglaries are tornado victims, whose only possessions are inside the storage units. So now the people who were stolen from are taking matters into their own hands to make sure this thief or these thieves get caught, hopefully soon.

"I just took it upon myself to start making copies of the picture and taking them over to builders," said storage unit owner, Melissa Miller. "Just people that are out in the neighborhoods, if you see this truck, you know, lets us know, call Moore Police Department."

Miller wants the guy in this security camera caught. The footage shows a guy cutting a lock then stealing the Millers' trailer.

"He came up this row and our trailer sat right there. In fact that was our lot right there," said Miller.

The storage facility has security cameras posted all over the property. Those cameras caught the thief in action.

"Got out and cut the lock and it only took him like thirty seconds to cut, cut the lock," Miller said.

But the Millers weren't the only victims. Half a dozen other units were broken into, including tornado victims.

"It just sucks that somebody would to that to them because they've already been violated."

Just Friday night, cameras caught this grey Chevy Impala roll into the storage facility. A man gets out, cuts open one of the units, then he takes off with some items.

"Just getting the picture out there, maybe somebody will know who it is."

Bottom line, the victims want this guy thrown in jail. Anyone who might recognize the vehicles or the guys in the surveillance video should contact the Moore Police Department right away. They don't want to give them time to hit up the area again.
